It has been quite hot these last few days in NY but how is everybody doing? Mausi family is doing great. Enjoying summer!!
Anyway, the other day we went to this Italian deli/pizzeria close to our place. This place has really good pizza and they also make fresh mozzarella and ricotta cheese.
We had small pizza (which is big) with mushroom and onion. What I love about this pizza is the crust is thin. I like thin crust pizza!
At deli section, they have different kind of fresh meat and cheese. One of my neighbor told me that their Mozzarella cheese and Ricotta cheese are really good so I bought those cheese.
I didn't take pictures of these cheese but we had Mozzarella for salad. Ricotta cheese was creamy and sweet and I could just eat it as is but since we had lots of them, I decided to make ricotta cheesecake.
This cake is not too sweet and have lots of ricotta and egg with little bit of flour.
The recipe I used was the one I found in All Recipes. Click here if you would like to jump to the recipe.
It said Sicilian ricotta cheesecake so the recipe muse be from Sicily. This is very different from American cheesecake. It was light and bit dry. My husband loved it. I liked it but I think I prefer something little bit sweeter and creamer.
It was very easy to make and tasted great. Maybe I will add little bit more sugar next time ;-)
It was really hot when I baked this cake so we couldn't stay in the house. My son and I played in front of the house while the cake is baked.
I think cheesecake is great for summer because you can eat it cool!
Well, if you like light cheesecake, try this one!
