Antipasto sfizioso

The cheesecake you don't expect

To prepare the cheesecake cake you need cheese, exactly as its name suggests. Ricotta, a soft cheese, is usually used rather than Greek yogurt. However, the kitchen is the perfect place to experiment and cheesecake lends itself to becoming a tasty alternative.

This is where the idea of ​​using gorgonzola to create the unexpected cheesecake was born. First of all, it is necessary to underline how the cheesecake cake is made: a crunchy base on which a flavored or sweetened cheese is placed and finally a superficial covering with jelly or a particular decoration.

The refrigerator is the best friend of the cheesecake cake as it gives it compactness. Nothing else is needed. Just start preparing the ingredients to amaze your guests! The alternative cheesecake goes perfectly with a delicate wine that can enhance and at the same time cleanse the palate of the greasiness of the cheese.
