A question about a recipe: Creamy Homemade Ricotta

I am truly confused by ricotta. I thought it was a "recooked" "cheese" made from the whey remaining after other cheeses had been made. This does not seem to be ricotta like that. So what's going on?

Thanks

Chris

Thanks. That goes some way (whey?!) to explaining why a recipe I was doing was so far off!
