Super EASY Homemade Ricotta Cheese Lo Fat

Have you ever stumbled upon a DIY project and was simply amazed at how easy the article "made" it sound, and then took months to even consider tackling it yourself? That would be my reaction when I first found this recipe for #Homemade Ricotta Cheese. I finally decided yesterday I was going to try it as I had some free time on my hands and REALLY wanted some without going to the store. I must say I will NEVER buy Ricotta cheese from the store again! It was super easy, took less than a minute to get the ingredients measured and combined! Total "wait" time that I had while slowly heating up the milk and then placing in the colander to drain for the finished product was less than an hour. An hour that I spent working on other things in my kitchen.  The finished product is wonderful, nothing like I have ever bought in the store!
