Can ricotta cheese be frozen to store for a long time.If yes than how long we keep ricotta in freezer.

1 Answer 1


I would not recommend freezing ricotta as-is. My concern is the freeze-thaw cycle would deteriorate the lovely delicate texture of the curds.

However, freezing a ricotta filling (example: a spinach ricotta filling for a pasta shell or cannelloni) seems to work well (bound with egg, breadcrumbs, parmesan, spinach, etc).
