  2. Choose your cooking vessel (line with parchment paper or very lightly oil the bottom of the pan - either are optional, but recommended to make cleanup easier):
  3. Flip/turn out the ricotta basket onto the cooking vessel 
  4. Place into the hot oven, baking for about 30-45 minutes (depending on your oven temperature), until the cheese develops a robust toasted look and crust
