Roll into a ball and wrap. Set aside.

5. Step

In a large bowl, mix the ricotta, salt, nutmeg, lemon zest, half of the parsley and pecorino cheese for the stuffing.

Cut the rolled-out dough into a large rectangle. Cut it in half the long way and then cut the dough into squares.

Easy Mac and Cheese Recipe

Our mac and cheese recipe will help you to beat your hunger. Its cheesy and creamy flavour will be enough to boost your mood.

The best vegetable ratatouile in the world

Honestly, I also thought that food composed only of vegetables could not be as good as having meat on a plate, but the opposite is true. Ratatouille has become one of the dishes that I will cook regularly.

Polenta

Polenta, writes Chez Panisse’s Cal Peternell in Twelve Recipes, is “more ratio than recipe.” The standard is 4 parts water to 1 part polenta, simmered for 30 minutes. Be careful to add the polenta to the boiling water in a slow, steady stream with one hand as you whisk with the other—this will prevent lumps from forming. (If you end up with a few lumps despite your best efforts, don’t sweat it; it’ll still taste delicious.) Enriching it at the end with butter and cheese isn’t strictly necessary.
