emergency cheese question

I'm making an orange pie tommorow, here is the recipe: ½ cup fresh squeeze orange juice 1 TBSP fresh lemon juice ¼ cup heavy whipping cream 1/3 cup Mascarpone cheese, room temperature 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk 1 to 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest, divided 5 egg yolks whipped cream, for garnish 1 Citrus Cookie pie shell(recipe follows)

Whisk sweetened condensed milk with the egg yolks. Whisk in Mascarpone cheese. Stir in whipping cream, orange juice and lemon juice. Stir in 1 to 1 ½ teaspoons orange zest. Pour into a prepared crust and bake at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes.

QUESTION: if my grocery store had no mascarpone, is it ok to use whole milk riccotta? will it work?? will it suck??? I need sE insight!

(Thanks to foodgawker and Culinary Concoctions by Peabody for the recipe)
