I have made ricotta. (hot milk and lemon)

I have seen some recommendations in relation to the whey of other cheeses. But I am not sure If I can apply it here.

Can you recommend a good use of the whey after making ricotta?

    Nitpick, just because it's a pet peeve of mine: You didn't make ricotta. You made an entirely different cheese which can work as an okay substitute for ricotta in some applications.

It's no different than the recommendation for other cheeses. I've seen suggestions to add to soup, or use in place of water during bread making.
