I agree with Lizannd - when I don't have enough ricotta left over for another recipe, I just have it for breakfast or lunch with some fruit &/or a drizzle of honey.

I'd go along with Urmaniac, but rather than stuffing pasta, I'd make Crespoline alla Fiorentina, pancakes stuffed with a chopped spinach and ricotta-based mixture and baked in the oven with tomato sauce and bechamel. Yum.

Or, for something simpler that doesn't require much ricotta, I sometimes make a sauce with garlic, chopped spinach and ricotta (or cottage cheese - the extra liquid in cottage cheese works well and the 'lumps' of cheese hold their shape better) and serve it with spaghetti. That feels like cheating because it could hardly be easier, but it still tastes good, almost like comfort food. And most people wouldn't say that about spinach!

If you have enough, mix it with just a few drops of olive oil and use it as a pizza sauce instead of tomato sauce.

You could just sprinkle a little cinnamon on it and eat it for dessert...

Snoop, I have not had that for years and it used to be my favourite! Thanks for reminding me.
