The Finished Product


And it was delicious. I grilled the bread, rubbed with garlic, spread my homemade ricotta and topped with roasted cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil-wonderful! Later we had open face meatball sandwiches and used a little bit of the ricotta here too. I’m sure I could find a variety of other uses for freshly made cheese, but there’s only about a spoonful left. The recipe using 8 cups of milk only yields 1-1/2 cups cheese. So if you want to use it in a lasagna or a cheese pie, you’ll need to keep a cow out back!
