Can we change limiting reactant in chemical reaction to increase the amount of required product?

Can we change limiting reactant in chemical reaction to increase the amount of required product? Like if zinc nitrate hexahydrate (15.0 g) reacts with sodium hydroxide (16.0 g) to produce zinc oxide (which was just 4.0 g), then can we change the amount of reactants in such a way so that the amount of zinc oxide produced is more?
