Ricotta cheese choices at the stores I frequent are fairly slim. Frigo is one of the two I usually get. I wonder if the other brands also have modified food starch, guar gum and carrageenan in it.
No matter the brand, there's always a inner plastic seal. I run a knife around the bowl edge to cut it out.
Then you can invert the ricotta over another bowl, squeeze the plastic, and the ricotta will fall out in one bowl-shaped lump. Or you can scoop it out.
Frigo ricotta, found in the cheese section near the shredded bags of cheese and sausages for $3.99 a 15-oz container.
