Ricotta is a by-product of mozzarella making. Italian cheesemakers would make mozzarella and be left with all this whey and found that they could use that to make a whole other product from it and the result is ricotta, which literally means “recooked”. We aren’t cheesemakers so we don’t have whey but luckily we can replicate the process with good quality milk.
