convert pounds of ricotta to cups

I have a recipe that calls for 3 pounds of ricotta. How many cups is that?

1 pound is 16 ounces
8 ounces is 1 cup
so therefore, 1 pound is 2 cups.

So for three pounds of ricotta cheese, you would need 6 cups. 3x1 =3 x2=6


Hey, Mom, long time. That only works for certain liquids. For example, a cup of granulated, processed sugar weighs 7 ounces. Ricotta does not contain much liquid.



There are 248 grams per cup.
3 pounds would be appox. 1360 grams
1360/248 would be approx. 5 1/2 cups.


1 pound = 16 ounces and that equals 2 cups
so the answer is 6 cups.


That depends. Is the ricotta supposed to be crumbled or packed? A cup of packed ricotta will weigh more than a cup of crumbled ricotta. If the recipe calls for weight, you should use weight, not volume.
