I accidentally doubled the ricotta in this recipe. Is it ruined?


It's all assembled for Christmas tomorrow and I realized that I added a 2lb tub instead of 1lb. 🤦‍♀️

No it's not ruined. It will just be "cheesier". Depending on the ricotta, you may end up with extra liquid being produced, and threaten you with a soupy lasagna. No sweat- just check it part way through the baking, and pour off any extra liquid. If you are of a mind to, you can save that back for making soup with. Freeze it until wanted.

Hayley...Not at all. The dish will just be a little bit richer for the extra ricotta.
If it's all mixed in, just bake as planned, or maybe a few extra minutes to account for the extra pound of cheese.
And taste it yourself after baking and resting a few minutes and before serving. It may need a bit more salt, pepper and/or some nutmeg, again to account for the extra cheese.
Happy Christmas and enjoy your day!
