DIRECTIONS

  • Line a strainer with cheesecloth.
  • In a small saucepan filled with boiling water over medium heat, add garlic and cook for 15- 20 minutes or until garlic can be piered with a knife. Drain well and let cool. Transfer garlic to a garlic press in batches and force through press. Measure out 2 tablespoons and set aside.
  • Beat ricotta in a medium bowl until softened. Add gorgonzola and continue mixing until smooth. Beat in cream.
  • Stir in salt and reserved garlic.

  • Arrange two sage leaves bottom side up in center of cloth.
  • Spoon cheese mixture over leaves, leaving a loose ball.

  • Unmold cheese onto a platter.
