I have some leftover ricotta too, so I might try this recipe.

Also, you might try lasagna unless thats the reason why you already have leftovers. I like ricotta in a baked ziti casserole with tomatoe sauce, italian
sausage, mozzarella. I've never used ricotta in desserts but there are many listed online.

This is some mighty good comfort food. The directions are for the microwave - I don't like "cooking" in the microwave. I use these ingredients & cook it on the stove & bake it in the oven.

Tomato, Bacon & Cheese Supper

1 medium onion chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup milk
3 eggs well beaten
3 cups Stove Top stuffing mix (in canister)
1 cup shredded swiss cheese
2 large tomatoes chopped
8 slices bacon cooked & crumbled
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions: Place onion & butter in 3 qt microwavable casserole. Cover loosely with wax paper.

Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir in ricotta, milk & eggs. Stir in stuffing mix, 3/4 cup of Swiss cheese, tomatoes, bacon & pepper until well mixed. Cover loosely with wax paper.

Microwave 10 minutes, stirring halfway thru cooking time. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Swiss. Let stand 5 minutes.

How much of ricotta you have left? You can do a lot of things with ricotta, mix with a little spinach, egg and your choice of cheese and do a cannelloni, well if you are already pasta'ed out how about a savoury pie/quiche with more eggs, some other combinations of cheese, throwing in some vegs and/or bacon, ham etc...
If you have enough, there are many delicious versions of ricotta cakes .. if it is still fresh enough to eat it uncooked, it makes a great snack just mixed with a little sugar, shaved dark chocolate and candied fruit pieces!!

If you only have a spoonful or 2 mix it with a sliced

peach or plum and a tiny bit of sugar. I've been eating this for breakfast for the last 4 days just to use up the cheese.

Eggplant Rollatini, ziti/sausage/tomato/ricotta bake, ricotta cheesecake, white pizza (a recent thread is posted here), stuffed shells - are a few ideas.
