Wonderful accident. I was in a favorite Italian shop and I noted in the deli there was a refrigerated cheese pie. It looked like the cheesecake my mother used to buy in the 50s. It was our Saturday shopping treat to take home. It was made in a loaf pan. Of course I bought 2 pieces and had eaten one before I hit the next store. What a wonderful flavor.
I immediately went home and started researching Italian cheese cake. I found several recipes.
Now my new goals are the perfect risotto and the perfect ricotta cheesecake.
I shall be busy.
