Food Thing

Best Ricotta-Cheese Dishes in the U.S.

The most famous dish starring ricotta, known for its mellow and slightly sweet flavor, is lasagna (this dish also features mozzarella and parmesan, making it your best option for trying a bunch of Italian cheeses at once!).

For this, too, you can’t go wrong in any of the country’s Italian-American neighborhoods, where lasagna recipes have been passed down through the generations. But for the most critically acclaimed lasagna, head to Domenica in New Orleans, which makes what the Food Network has named the country’s most superb version of the meal. The differentiating factors here? Parsley-infused pasta sheets and a dash of red wine for flavoring.

When stuffed inside sugar-dusted rolls of fried pastry dough, ricotta cream is also what makes the Italian dessert of cannoli sing. Try the best cannoli of your life at Mike’s Pastry in Boston’s North End Italian-American neighborhood (nearby Modern Pastry makes a killer version too).

An indulgent version at Mike’s made with chocolate ricotta and chocolate chips is pictured here.
