There really is nothing to make it thicker. It probably just needs to be strained more. Sometimes you might even have to weight it down in a sieve and let it sit. Maybe even use a cheesecloth.
Always try to buy a impastata riccitta, its a little lower in moisture.

15 oz ricotta cheese
1 cup confectiioners' sugar
1/2 cup chopped candied citron

I stir together the cheese and sugar, fold in thecitron. chill until cold. Fill cannoli using a pastry bag. It runs out the other end. I think straining the cheese will solve my problem.

Since there's nothing out of the ordinary you're adding I would say Pan hit the nail on the head...Again! Just don't forget to add the mini choc chips. Can't picture cannoli without them. Well that and the candied pistachios too.
