    JPsBarbie's Note:

    This was my Nonna's recipe. We always had this for the holidays. It is my favorite cheesecake because it doesn't have a crust. The most important thing is to NOT open the oven door.

      While this recipe was very tasty, seemed a bit too grainy from the ricotta. I will definitely be making it again but think I may not add as much ricotta. Nevertheless though, this is a definite repeat make recipe, thanks so much for sharing such an easy recipe!

      I grew up in New York and always loved the texture of a New York Cheesecake, but didn't like the heavyness of it. This Cheesecake is perfect, we ate it still warm which is even a lighter taste. I chilled it and tasted it this morning and it has set up so nicely. with a great texture and weight and It is so easy to make, because you are not watching it every five minutes. I would make it the day before you plan on serving it, I do perfer it chilled and then you can warm up to room temp. But it is cheese so it should be kept chilled. I made it plain, then melted some dark chocolate raspberry chips and drizzled on top. Just enough sweetness. I had to take it off the table to stop my husband from eating the entire thing. All he kept saying is keep this recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
