    Steaming hot from the oven is fine. No bugs would survive that

    It sounds yummy!

    Yes, perfectly safe! Oh and it should be pasteurised, meaning you can eat it uncooked too

    Oh yay! I've been avoiding Canneloni because of the ricotta as well. Also bought some Pastizzi (spelling? lol, not Italian) but wasn't sure.
    I am so making Canneloni for dinner tomorrow
    Can someone tell me how to tell if it's pasteurised when you buy it from the deli at the supermarket? Should I just ask? Is it usually? Sorry, crashing your thread here with my questions, lol.. but I was wondering the same thing because I really love and miss ricotta

    Regardless of whether it's pasteurized, you can't eat the stuff from the deli...it's the storage/handling that's the issue.

    But you can buy it from the cold section in buckets. The ingredient list will say 'pasturised milk'.

    Same goes with all soft, pasturised cheese such as feta, haloumi etc. Only absolute no-no is brie/blue cheese etc and that's more about the mould spores/aging process rather than whether it's been pasteurized!

    Damn auto correct.
