Mascarpone Cheesecake Recipe

I've done a search and all the recipes I've found for mascarpone cheesecake have regular cream cheese included in the ingredients. I'd like to make one w/o the cream cheese. What about substituting ricotta cheese instead. Does anyone have a fabulous recipe for a mascarpone cheesecake? TIA!

    I'm not sure about the chemistry involved in leaving out or substituting for the cream cheese, but the recipe I've linked too is quite good. It is much lighter then a full on cream cheese cheesecake. The ratio of mascarpone to cream cheese is 8:3.
