Ricotta Salata (salted ricotta) is an Italian cheese made from sheep's milk whey, which is pressed, salted, formed into a wheel and aged for several months. It has a creamy, mild flavour and it is slightly saltier than regular ricotta.

Based in the Sardinian countryside, Central has been making high-quality cheese since the 19th century.

Try Ricotta Salata grated on pasta instead of parmesan for a nice, nutty flavour; alternatively, it can be grated or sliced into salads as an alternative to feta or it can be used with grains, pulses and on toasts. For a simple but flavoursome meal try Rigatoni with tomato sauce, basil and grated ricotta salata.
