Two for Tuesday: Galbani

With all the Galbani commercials on TV, I had to try the products.  I found mozzarella at a lot of grocery stores but wasn’t for the longest time able to find the ricotta.  Finally, I did.  I like the fresh, creamy ciliegine, cherry-sized balls of mozzarella.  They are really nice added to a salad.

I’m not as happy with the ricotta as it has a sweet flavor that I don’t like in ricotta, and it also has added gums.  It’s made in the USA–not Italy.

      Lasagna is probably the most popular Italian dish with ricotta in it. It’s also used in cannoli cream, so you may have had it already!

  3. I make my own ravioli at home, I bet the ricotta would balance out the savory well. And actually now I can’t think of whether most ricotta is sweet or not…

      Hi Jessie, Most ricotta isn’t sweet but it’s a taste preference. I used this Galbani ricotta in a smoky white bean dip and it was very good with savory flavors.

  4. I love ricotta and mozzarella, but I don’t think we have Galbani in my neck of the woods. Not yet anyway!
