Raveggiolo is a sheep’s milk cheese that looks like ricotta but has different texture and taste. It has a soft, gelatinous consistency and a slightly sour flavor.
Raveggiolo is produced throughout Tuscany, and especially in the Pistoia and Siena areas. I like to use it to make ravioli and crespelle al raveggiolo, thin pancakes stuffed with raveggiolo and wild herbs.
