Impastata ricotta, which roughly translates as "mixed ricotta" or "ricotta turned into a paste," is analogous to a form of ricotta made in Italy that some bakers use to fill cannoli. In the early- to mid-20th century, several Italian cheese-makers outside of New York City started producing impastata ricotta to meet the demands of NYC bakeries who wanted ricotta in the "old style," and word of the velvety, butter-like cheese spread. Ricotta is made impastata after production, not during, so you can make your own at home.
