Being Italian, I have a ton of family recipe's that have been handed down for generations that I love, but since I'm getting older, I have started to now play with them and make healthier versions. This is a true NY style cheese cake made with Ricotta, but i eliminated the sugar and some of the fat without compromising the taste. This is a dense, but light, cheesecake that you can serve as is or with fruit topping. I hope you enjoy as much as my family has. You really do have to refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours for it to firm up.
