I found this recipe in the search engine for homemade ricotta stlye cheese.
http://www.eggheadforum.com/index.php?option=com_simpleboard&func=view&id=2961&catid=1#
This is worth the effort. The last time I tried this recipe it cost about $16 for the cheese alone.
I used this recipe for the cannelloni.

This turned out great. The ricotta was way better than store bought at a fraction of the cost. Really brings the cost of this recipe down :)

Thanks for looking

    Shane, cannelloni totally from scratch! I'm impressed. :) It looks great. I've made paneer, now you've got me wanting to make ricotta.

    I'm glad I didn't see poor Mr. Holloway winding up as a hotdog in your post,lol.

    Shane, that's a terrific post and a fabulous looking meal! B) I found myself going back and forth from photo to photo over and over again. VERY Nice. ;)

    Could I ask what the yield was on the ricotta? One gallon of milk = "about how much finished ricotta?"

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Shane,

    You are really making me feel like an amateur. Homemade pasta...homemade bread...homemade ricotta!!! Just tell me the sauce was from a jar!!! :) :).

    It looks wonderful! I am bookmarking this recipe. I will get the wife to do all the parts leading up to putting the casserole dish on the egg ;).


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Looks great - did you make your own red sauce too?

    I never would have thought of making my own ricotta - thanks for sharing.
