    Default Leftover ricotta

    I have some leftover ricotta that I need to use up. Any ideas? I
    don't feel like doing a big production.

    Drizzle a little honey over it and have it for dessert.

    If you didn't want a Big Production, you could have saved some time
    by not posting here asking for suggestions.

    I'm sorry if I sound blunt.

    Omelet comes with her own ricotta-like cheese.

    Cut up some fresh fruit and put that on the ricotta. Pinch of sugar if
    necessary.

    I just stir a dollop or two in my marinara sauce and use as usual over
    ziti.

    Make a batch of brownies. Mix in a little sugar and an egg with the ricotta
    and swirl it in. Marble it in the brownies. Will come out like cream
    cheese brownies.

    Make eggplant rollatine.

    Cut a large eggplant or two in lengthwise slices about 1/4" thick. Soften
    in a pan with a little olive oil.

    Take a shallow casserole and put some red sauce on the bottom.

    Mix your ricotta with an egg and some other Italian cheese that has been
    shredded. I like Asiago but you could use any cheese that you have. Put a
    spoonful of this mix on a slice of the eggplant. Roll it up and place with
    the end tucked under in your casserole.

    Fill the casserole leaving a bit of room between each roll because they will
    expand a little as they cook.

    Cover with some more red sauce and more grated Italian cheese. Bake at 350
    until hot and bubbly and heated through. Maybe 20 minutes to half an hour.
    I don't have an actual recipe for this. I just wing it.

    Or do as the Italians do and spread it on toast and drizzle with honey.

    Boil up some big ricotta noodles. Top with your favorite pasta sauce and
    add the ricotta. Toss a little to incorporate. It's great with Italian
    sausages.

    Not sure what you consider a big production. Lasagna comes to mind,
    as does cheesecake. Then there's gnudi.

    Two cups is enough for stuffed pasta. Mix the ricotta with an egg, 1/4 cup
    grated parmesand and chopped vegetable (spinach or broccoli). Stuff the
    mixture in cooked jumbo shells, or canneloni or other similar pasta, put in
    a small casserole dish, smother in pasta sauce (from a jar or can) and bake
    20-30 minutes at 350F.

    I haven't made that in ages... and used spinach. Do they still make
    those gigantic shells? I've looked for them a couple of times when in
    a place where I thought they should be and haven't seen any.

    Creamy Eggs and Ricotta on a Croissant: A couple of eggs scrambled with
    milk, garlic, grated Asiago, Italian spices, salt and pepper. 1/2 cup
    ricotta stirred in after the eggs are completely cooked. Piled onto a
    split and toasted croissant.

    Oh dang. Here I thought there was a new noodle. But I'll bet there is some
    way to make a noodle dough with ricotta in it.
