Cottage cheese has long been hailed as the dieter's food of choice, and for a good reason. It's packed full of protein and calcium, while remaining low in calories, fat and carbs. But the best part? It's deliciously creamy and salty flavour goes wonderfully in menu dishes, making a great substitute for 'naughtier' ingredients like cream, mozarella or bechamel sauce in lasagne. Here, we've pulled together some tasty ways to use more of it, from sweet slices, cheesecakes and muffins, to savoury frittatas, pies and breakfast fritters.
Fior de latte is the traditional Italian name for cow's milk mozzarella. And this gorgeous recipe from The Australian Women's Weekly's Made From Scratch cookbook means you can make this creamy cheese yourself.
This recipe can be found in Michele Cranston's "A Simple Table". The rich, salty–sweet flavours of the caponata are well suited to the milky simplicity of the ricotta, and the fresh oregano is a perfect accompaniment to anything with tomato. Spoon the caponata over just before serving, to keep the ricotta looking fresh. If you don’t have time to make the caponata, then the ricotta can be simply topped with fresh herbs, some olives, or quartered and well-seasoned cherry tomatoes. However, the caponata is a great recipe in itself and is equally at home with grilled beef or lamb, seared tuna or spooned onto bruschetta.
