Best supermarket ricotta?

lafarrell | Feb 25, 2012 07:26 AM

Hi everyone. I'm looking on opinions on ricotta cheese brands -- ones that are pretty easily found in regular supermarkets. I was making a basic baked ziti the other day and made the mistake of buying Target's store brand (Market Pantry, I think). It was low fat/low moisture. Maybe that had something to do with it? It was absolutely awful. I've never paid much attention to the ricotta brand that I buy but this experience told me that it probably makes a big difference. Also, I don't care if it's low fat or not -- just want it to taste rich, creamy, and smooth. The Target brand taste and consistency made me think of wallpaper paste.

Many thanks in advance for your opinions.
