Request: low fat recipes using high fat ricotta

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

My local grocer only had high fat ricotta last night when I needed it for a dinner recipe. It was fine in yesterday's recipe - not too disastrous, fat-wise - but now I have 1.5 cups of full fat ricotta and I want to use it up in a healthful way. Any recommendations from you fine folks of recipes that call for ricotta in which my full fat cheese wouldn't break the bank? I'm generally into more savoury than sweet dishes, so desserts need not apply.

    I used to have a recipe for ricotta white bread--in a bread machine cookbook. I don't have the recipe here, as the book is in storage somewhere in the world, but I googled ricotta bread and this looks similar. Not particularly "whole" or low fat, but delicious. You could adapt it with whole grains and use a food processor instead of a machine...Just a thought!

    Hrmmm... The only thing that comes to mind are pasta dishes. I might have a few laying around somewhere for a baked ziti or a veggie lasagna if you're interested.
