I have checked on the food network site, allrecipes.com, recipezaar.com and others and I can't find a recipe for cannoli without using ricotta cheese. I'm from new york and I don't know if they are made differently in other places but I've never eaten a cannoli that had ricotta cheese in it (at least that I could feel/taste) So I wanted to know if all cannoli are made using ricotta cheese but some recipes use it strained so you don't feel or taste it? Or are there recipes that don't use it? I've seen it mentioned that they can be made using mascarpone but I can't find a recipe with that. Does anyone have a really good cannoli recipe that doesn't have the ricotta taste/texture?
