*Mozzarella hails from Italy and is traditionally made with Italian buffalo milk but today it is made mostly with cow's milk. Due to mozzarella's high moisture content homemade mozzarella is best served the day after it is made, but it can be kept in brine for up to a week. Mozzarella is used on most types of pizza and several pasta dishes, as well as insalata caprese with sliced tomatoes and basil.
*Ricotta is an Italian whey cheese with a creamy flavor and texture. This cheese is traditionally made from the whey of sheep, cow, goat, or Italian buffalo milk (whey is a by-product of cheese production). Ricotta is a favorite ingredient in many Italian desserts, such as cannoli, but is also used in savory dishes, like pizza, pasta, calzone, manicotti, lasagne, and ravioli.
