Recipe: Whole Milk Ricotta-and-Egg Pasta Pillows

Written by

Ricotta might be the most versatile ingredient I use in the kitchen. Of course there is lasagne but when I want to let it shine I make  gnocchi , pancakes, cannoli or just put it on toast or my morning bowl of granola. 

This recipe for homemade ricotta comes from Cathy Barrow, the  blogger  and author behind  Mrs. Wheelbarrow’s Practical Pantry . I’ve included her recipe for Ricotta-and-Egg Pasta Pillows too. In my interview with Cathy on this week’s show, she describes ricotta as a “shape-shifter” in the kitchen. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
