Take the Asiago cheese and reduce it to thin slices with a cheese grater. In a saucepan, heat the milk, add the ricotta, salt and pepper, then pour also Asiago cheese, when the whole thing will become a creamy sauce add the isinglass previously soaked in water, stir well over a low heat until it is completely dissolved, careful not to reach boiling point.
Sprinkle with oil, some small moulds, cover the bottom with poppy seeds and pour the mixture to fill the mould. Let it cool at ambient temperature and then put the small molds in the freezer for about an hour.
When the mixture is cold and well solidified reshape it into a serving bowl, place it on a disc of fried bread (or toast if you want to pay attention to calories) and served with honey and dried tomatoes.
