Ricotta Salata (what to do with...)

andytee | Jan 31, 2008 08:56 PM

I bought some ricotta salata (the relatively dry, slice-able ricotta, not the stuff used in lasagna) for a pizza idea I tried tonight - pizza spread with pesto and topped with cubes of butternut squash and thickly grated ricotta salata. It turned out just ok, the ricotta dried out too much in the oven and mostly added a salty crunch. If i did it again, I would grate the ricotta on after the pizza cooks, but that is another story.

For now, I've got a good chunk of the ricotta salata left over, any good ideas what to do with it?
