Grandma DiLauras gnocchi are delicious! Also, you can mix some into scrambled eggs with chives, or mixed in with pasta and roasted eggplant and tomatoes.

Fabulous ideas! Thank you. Now, of course I want even more ricotta so I can make gnocchi, tarts and cheesecake!

Make a white pizza. Ricotta, garlic and mozzarella cheese for the base sauce. Top with red onions, mushrooms, asparagus..things that need to be cooked while baking the pizza.

At the last minuets of cooking, add cooked sliced chicken and herbage, like basil or arugula (tossed with oil so they go all dry) and Parmesan cheese.

Here are two of my favorite non-gnocchi uses for ricotta: Tuscan lemon muffins and Sweet ricotta with wine-poached figs: http://www.jacksonholefoodie...

Spinich:
Even if you have only a dollop left over you can make a beautiful filling for an omelette with your ricotta mixed with steamed chopped spinach, grated parmigiano and a little grate of nutmeg. Don't want an omelette?
Use the same mixture for making a divine grilled cheese sandwich. One of my favorite cheeses for this purpose is Vecchio Piave. These are two of my family's favorites.

Spoon ricotta into a bowl, top with nuts, a bit of honey, and lemon zest. Makes a great breakfast.
