While gourmet chefs may never freeze ricotta cheese because it will change it's texture, a homemaker on a budget may successfully freeze the cheese for future use. Only freeze the whole milk version of ricotta. Seal the cheese well in an airtight container. Be sure to use it within 2 months. You may also choose to prepare a meal using the ricotta and then freeze the entire dish. It will stand up to freezing better when pre-cooked.
Yes, ricotta cheese can be frozen. It should be kept in the same container if unopened. Ricotta cheese should be transferred to a smaller container or resealable bag if it has been opened. It can be kept for up to six months without losing flavor.
