I’m not a fan of store-bought ricotta’s grainy texture. Are you? Whipping it in a food processor solves that.

 

If you’re like me, that grainy texture is kind of ick. It’s amazing what 3 minutes in a food processor will do to really smooth things out.  Whether you use whole milk or part-skim, just whip the ricotta with herbs, garlic, parmesan, and other seasonings. It lightens up and that grainy texture almost completely disappears. Scoop it out of the processor and place it back into its storage container to use later. Here are some ideas below:

  • pizzas
  • pasta
  • garlic bread
  • lasagna
  • focaccia
  • grilled veggies
  • sandwich spread

An amazingly fresh and light lunch or dinner in 20 minutes or less. Store-bought flatbread, topped with herbed whipped ricotta, loaded with fresh veggies, and sprinkled with parmesan. It’s so good.

Transforming store-bought ingredients is something I love to do. And we did it again with purchased flatbread. It’s perfect for a quick pizza, and it’s also incorporating the Whipped Herb Ricotta with Garlic and Parmesan. ZUCCHINI RIBBON FLATBREAD PIZZA

Store-bought ricotta blended with fresh herbs, garlic, cheese, and seasonings is so easy to make at home. Deliciously creamy with a bright, fresh, herby flavor. It goes great on everything!
