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.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees, with rack in center. Lightly coat a 7-inch round spring-form pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs, coating evenly.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, parsley, marjoram, mint, and zest. Add ricotta and salt; season with pepper. Stir to combine. Pour into prepared pan.

  • Bake until top is deep golden brown and firm to the touch, about 1 hour.

  • Place pan on a plate to catch juices. Let stand until torta pulls away from sides, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan; serve warm or at room temperature.
