Sourdough-Ricotta-Blueberry Strata

Ricotta cheese is so easy to make you’ll want to make it every week. Whole milk ricotta cheese is almost as rich as cream cheese and can be used in place of cream cheese in many recipes. This delicious strata is a crowd pleaser. Try it at your next special breakfast or brunch.
