Ricotta Cheese

My husband and I attended a beautiful wedding last Sunday which was held by the lake in the innermost area in Missouri. After the ceremony, the wedding entourage took their pictures outdoor while the guests were guided to the beautiful reception area down the basement of a restaurant. The guests started nibbling the fruits, salads and cheeses but some were already digging on the delicious lasagna with Ricotta Cheese.
I am not a big fan of cheese but, for the first time I ate a full plate of variety of cheeses. It was so good especially when I ate the grapes and strawberries with it. They served variety of food and everyone really enjoyed the delicious foodies on the table. The lasagna was so creamy and one of the most favorite menu that day.

Did you know that ricotta is a favorite component of many Italian desserts? I assumed that most of us love Italian food right? Ricotta Cheese is a good ingredient in making cheesecakes, cannoli, and some cookies. But, Ricotta Cheese is commonly used in savory dishes and that includes pasta, calzone, pizza, manicotti, lasagna, and ravioli. If in case you have no mayonnaise, Ricotta Cheese is a suitable substitute in any traditional egg or tuna salad as well as a sauce thickener. Anyway, since they have Hawaiian guests, they also have steamed rice and kalua.

We left after the slicing of the cake since we had to head back to another town to catch our flight. All I could think of was the awesome view by the lake, the beautiful ceremony, and the great food they served which are aplenty. All the guests are dear friends and close knit family of the bride and groom.
