I got a request on Instagram from a viewer, @thecultclassy, to make a dish from Italy, so I made my favorite Italian dessert, ricotta cheesecake! It’s completely different from New York cheesecake (which makes me feel like I swallowed a rock). There’s no cream cheese, only ricotta, so it’s light and fluffy. I used Martha Stewarts recipe to make this dish, but adapted it slightly to fit my tastebuds. To me, this tastes the way Italy feels…bright, happy, carefree. The perfect way to serve up la dolce vita, anywhere.
