Ricotta Bread

Ricotta Bread

Posted 2013-01-03 by Bastion Harrisonfollow


Did you know that 'ricotta' means 're-cooked' in Italian? Ricotta is not actually a cheese, but rather a curd that has been cooked twice (hence the name). It is light and creamy with a lovely mild taste that makes it the perfect complimentary filling for this Mediterranean style loaf, because it does not overpower the over flavours, and creates a beautiful texture. Based on the brands I used, sixteen slices should be about 91 calories each.
