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. With a sharp knife, cut the roll into equal pieces (I got 8). Bake until golden brown and firm to the touch, 20 to 28 minutes. In a small bowl, mix the softened mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla to make a smooth glaze.
