Perfectly nice starter recipe -- inexpensive, quick, satisfying, reasonably healthful. Taking advice from other reviews, I used 1.5 jars of sauce ... next time I'll use 2. I tend to like my pasta fairly lightly sauced, but even with the extra half-jar it was slightly dry. Also as per other reviews, I added minced garlic and some dried basil to the ricotta mixture, to richen the flavor. For health reasons I used Eggbeaters rather than an egg, and Barilla multigrain pasta -- both seemed to work fine. Altogether, results were quite pleasant, but next time I think I'll do more to it. Meat would be an easy addition but I'm looking for healthy & satisfying meatless options to make our diet healthier, so I'm thinking about adding chopped onions and mushrooms and maybe squash or eggplant to the sauce, and maybe adding some chopped spinach to the ricotta mixture. I think those would enhance the flavor nicely as well as adding nutrition.
