Cibreo's Ricotta Sformata
1 pound ricotta
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
( in cibreo’s cookbook it is made with additional 2 kg of spinach, washed cooked down and finely minced)
Butter an 8x8 pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients above and pour into buttered pan.
Bake uncovered at 350 till a film forms on top, about 5 minutes.
Cover with foil and finish baking for 30 - 40 minutes.
It is like a quiche,when the knife comes out clean it is done!
This is like heaven in your mouth! Truly wonderful. It is also amazing with the spinach. You can serve it with additional grated parmesan and a little spoonful of fresh pesto or with the following tomato gravy. I also served it with sautéed artichokes. You can see the tomatoes cooking in the background.
