From the recipe archive: Marino's ricotta cheesecake

August 26, 2011 |  7:00 am


Hal just sent me a Culinary SOS requesting a cheesecake recipe. Looked easy enough until I realized he wanted a recipe that does not include cream cheese. With most cheesecake recipes, it seems cream cheese is the number one ingredient.

But no worries! We ran a story on cheesecake just a few years ago that includes a number of wonderful variations on this favorite dessert. One of them, the ricotta cheesecake from Marino's in Los Angeles, was a memorable hit. And it's cream cheese-free.

Enjoy, Hal! You can find the recipe by clicking on this link.
