Throughout the years, I've tried several brands of ricotta cheese - Polly-O, Sorrento, Biazzo, ShopRite, Calabro just to name a few. But it wasn't until a few months ago, that I discovered the best ricotta cheese I've ever tasted. It is called Montena Taranto from Ridgefield, NJ. Norma had posted a thread on this brand's fresh mozzarella here http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=14253.0.
But I found their ricotta at a local Italian deli and have used it a couple times now. It is by far, the creamiest ricotta cheese I've ever had. I thought I'd share because it's wonderful on pizza and in lasagna.
The other day I was making lasagna and only had one container. Unfortunately it was not enough so my husband ran to the store and found another brand that is very good called Maggio. I'm not sure if either of these brands are only available locally or are available outside of NJ...
Anyway, I wanted to share my favorite brand of ricotta cheese. What is your favorite brand?
