Heat the oven to 400°F. Grease the sides and bottom of a 8 or 9″ baking pan with cooking spray. Combine the ricotta cheese, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla in food processor and process until smooth, about 10 seconds. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda and pulse in short bursts just until the dough clumps together (don’t overprocess). The dough will be soft and moist. Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it with floured hands 4 or 5 times until smooth (it really only takes 4-5 times). Brush the dough with the melted butter, leaving a 1/2-inch border unbuttered around the edges. Starting at a long edge, roll up the dough jelly-roll style.
