Ricotta Ideas

Ok. I admit, i'm addicted to fresh ricotta. (and thats ree-goat-uh, with a nice italian accent)....

I do NOT want to make lasagne, ravioli, manicotti, or any other type of stuffed pasta, I dont want to stuff squash blossoms.......
any good ideas for fresh ricotta, if i can keep myself from just eating it all right out of the container ?

  1. Desserts?
    Ricotta mousse with berries
    Bread pudding with brioche

    1. Saag paneer? Suvir Saran's recipe uses fresh ricotta.

      I like it for breakfast with some cinnamon and honey.

      1. I loved these ricotta/eggplant rolls I did a few months ago! :)


        1. Ricotta cheesecake.
          Caramel Ricotta Pudding: like a creme caramel; instead of a custard, beat ricotta until fluffy, beat in egg, milk, sugar and vanilla extract; bake in a water bath.
          Doctor it up and use it as a spread on bread or a dip.
          Season it with chopped herb such as sage or marjoram, salt, pepper and bake it in a ramekin. Drizzle with ev olive oil.
          Ricotta fritter: drain and season it, form small balls, roll in dried bread crumb and deep fried.

          1. I too have it for breakfast with a little cinnamon and ginger yogurt from T.J.'s yum! Add fruit and or granola.
