Gioia: 10 lbs Cheese Challenge

My dad was nice enough to pick up almost 10 lbs of freshly made cheese from the Gioia factory in South El Monte, east of downtown LA.  All this delicious cheese: burrata, ricotta and mozzarella for only $24!  It's much cheaper at the factory; the burrata was only $6.99 for a pound, as compared to $12.00 the last time I bought it.  Now what to do with all this cheese...  We used some ricotta and mozzarella for pizza night on Friday night and a bunch of ricotta and mozzarella for the two pans of lasagna for wine club last night.  We actually finished all the of the fresh mozzarella, just have a little burrata left that we'll use on heirloom tomatoes and some ricotta.  Any suggestions for the ricotta?

Delicious spinach pizza from friday night.  Cheese used included ricotta, mozzarella and comte.
Lasagna in progress; I like using lots of colorful vegetables, including orange and yellow peppers, onions, and carrots. I added kale, basil and parsley later
