Please help. Supermarket only had ricotta cheese.
I often make a cheesecake but only ever use mascarpone cheese.

Have made one today, the ricotta looked horrible when it came out of the pot, not all creamy like the mascarpone usually does. It looked slightly split when I added the cream and sugar etc.
Tasted it, and it wasn't very nice..... Am worried its more a savoury cheese?

Has anybody ever used ricotta cheese in an UN BAKED cheesecake???

Worried about serving it up to my little ones now?

I have never used it but ricotta does have a split look about it. So it isn't off.

It was mainly the texture, really grainy, and the taste, even with lemon zest and juice etc, just didn't taste that nice, and it felt all grainy to taste too.

Will let it set, but probably won't give it to the little ones, will test out on husband first.
