Baked Herbed Ricotta


  • 250 g tub smooth ricotta
  • 2 tbs finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten lightly
  • 1 teaspoon each of parsley, chive and sage leaves finely chopped
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tbs olive oil

Serves 2 – 3


  • Combine ricotta, parmesan, and eggs in a bowl.
  • Stir through, chopped herbs and season with pepper.
  • Spoon into a 2 cup silicone log container, smooth the top and place on the rim of the turntable.
  • Cover loosely with paper towel and cook on Medium (50 – 60 %) for 5 – 6 minutes, moving to the opposite of the turntable halfway through cooking time.
  • Remove from microwave, drizzle with oil and then place in a preheated conventional oven for 6-7 minutes to turn golden.
  • Serve sliced with a roasted capsicum salad.

Silicone containers can be purchased in supermarkets cheaply and may be used in both microwave and conventional ovens.
Speedy microwave cooking eliminates the need for baking in a water bath as required in a regular oven, and halves the cooking time.
