Proving it's easy to make ricotta at home, this recipe starts with hot milk and yogurt, to which rennet is added. Left to curdle for an hour, the curds are lifted out and drained. The resulting cheese keeps in the refrigerator for a few days. Consider spreading it on toasted crostini; top it with toasted pistachios, drizzles of balsamic vinegar and honey and some freshly cracked black pepper.


  • 1 roll (ready-made puff pastry)
  • pancetta (rolled)
  • mozzarella cheese (sliced)
  • parmesan cheese (grated)
  • milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Roll out the pastry, cover with pancetta and mozzarella.
  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  4. Roll up the pastry as in a strudel and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  5. Brush with milk and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Using ready-made puff pastry makes this an easy dish, appropriate for brunch. The meat and cheeses are simply rolled into the pastry and baked. This could also work with ham and cheddar or other combinations. A tasty vegetarian option would be asparagus and fontina.
