Line a 9″ springform pan with parchment paper and grease with butter, up the sides as well.

Add ricotta to cheesecloth lined colander set over bowl, let drain up to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees, set rack in lower third of oven.

Add drained ricotta to mixer, beat on med for 3 mins, it will become nice and fluffy.

Now add the sugar, then flour, mix on low speed until just blended.

One at a time add eggs, then lemon juice and zest, vanilla and salt until all incorporated.

Pour into prepared Graham cracker crust.

Bake 1 hour, the edges should be lightly browned and the middle of the cake may still jiggle a bit, it will firm up in fridge overnight.

When ready to serve remove from the fridge, and let the cheesecake come to room temperature before slicing and serving.
