Happy Spring! It’s time to celebrate with a light and lovely Ricotta Cheesecake with Lemon & Raspberries! The Italians do a lot of things right when it comes to cooking and one of the best things they’ve come up with is Ricotta Cheesecake.

This recipe is life-changing for me y’all. I adore a good, cheesy lasagna but because we are pretty much grain-free at our house, it’s not something I get to enjoy often. Until today!

It’s a super easy white sauce with a little nutmeg added in. It adds a wonderful richness to the lasagna that takes a classic comfort food to a whole new level. Once you try it, you may never go back!
