I just bought some ricotta on a whim and now i'm wondering what to do with it?.  The only time i've had ricotta is in lasagna, calzone, etc...

What kinds of food is it good with,etc...?.  

Thanks!
Mickey

You can make rather nice thick pancakes with it
Look in the recipe center - I have posed some once.

Eggs, ricotta, lemon peel, and a little flour. fry golde in ghee eat with berries or good jam.

It is rather nice mixed with berries and sweetner as well. especially raspberries.

Stir into rice or rice pasta with veggies and whatever spices you like with it. Eat in a bowl like yogurt, with fruit added. Bake cheesecake with riccotta, eggs, and agave.

Thanks for all the great ideas everyone!!!  

I especially like the non-recipe one's for right now since it's a busy time of year, maybe after the holidays i can experiment with the recipes.

I like to add about 1/4 cup to a bowl of oatbran or oatmeal.

If you do a search for "ricotta" in the recipe center, you will find several recipes that might help you decide what to do with it. You can do the same with the genotype diet recipe center.

Maybe you can find lasagna noodles made with rice.  Make a lasagna.  If you cannot have tomato sauce, make a white sauce with other compliant cheeses.

pureed beets and carrots makes a really good tomato sauce substitute also.

equal parts steamed beets and carrots...pureed with a little of the steamer water. Spices as desired. Oregano goes nicely with it.
