  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the campanelle pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain. Transfer pasta to a large bowl, add ricotta cheese, and stir so the ricotta begins to melt into the pasta.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion in olive oil until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Sir tomato sauce, basil, and oregano with the onion; bring to a simmer and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Pour tomato sauce over the pasta and stir until the sauce and cheese evenly coat the pasta.

I have to admit, I made some tweaks to this recipe and, even with the tweaks, the resounding opinion was "bland". I added garlic, salt, and crushed red pepper to the sauce and I can't imagine how bland it would have been w/out them. I did have to sub dried for fresh herbs when the fresh I'd purchased didn't last until it was time to (finally) make this. However, while they would have brightened the dish, a bit, they wouldn't have made a marked improvement. If you like blander food (and many do, that's not a "knock", at all), this is certainly worth trying. THANKS for the recipe!
