  • Summary

    This delicate torta makes a lovely luncheon dish. Served with our Warm Bean, Snap Pea, and Tomato Salad, it is perfect for a springtime supper. To drain the ricotta cheese, place it in a fine sieve lined with cheesecloth, and set the sieve over a deep bowl; let stand at least one hour at room temperature.

    Ingredients

    • 2 to 3 tablespoons fine breadcrumbs, preferably homemade
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
    • 2 pounds part-skim ricotta, drained
    • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
