Ricotta cheese is a wet, creamy, mild, fresh cheese that is soft in texture and has a slightly sweet flavor. Traditional Italian cheese-makers originally produced ricotta from the whey that remained after making mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Ricotta literally means "re-cooked."

• 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic

• 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

• 1 cup of crumbled feta or goat cheese

• 1 cup of ricotta cheese

• 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme

• 1/2 tablespoon of chives

• 1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh basil

Preparation (Do it!)

1) In a small frying pan, heat the butter over medium heat and let it melt. Add the garlic and cook the garlic until tender, about 1 minute. Don't let the garlic turn brown.

2) Transfer butter and garlic mixture to a food processor or hand blender and add the rest of the ingredients.

3) Salt and pepper to taste. If the flavor is too strong, you can add more ricotta cheese.
