There ricotta omelette it is a surprising recipe, with the rich taste of eggs diluted by the delicate one of cheese. The basil aroma, then, certainly gives us an edge, sweetening everything and spreading a wonderful scent during cooking. If you have had ricotta in the fridge for a couple of days, this recipe is perfect for consuming it. If, on the other hand, like me, you will use freshly bought ricotta, I recommend letting it rest for at least 15 minutes on a fine mesh sieve, or lined with a clean cloth, so as to make it lose the whey.
This is yours omelette it will be soft and light. I opted for oven cooking, which is longer but less heavy: if you prefer, you can cook it in a pan like a normal omelette.
In any case, as always, if you try my recipe let me know what you think ;-)
