part-skim ricotta cheese
chopped fresh basil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese
My Italian grandmother used to make this all the time when I was little but she sauteed the ricotta, basil and garlic in olive oil and then poured it over the spaghetti. DELICIOUS!!!
Easy peasy. Insipid. I made it to accompany a very boldly seasoned turkey breast, and my guests ended up doctoring it at the table with chile paste.
So easy to make! We added small pieces of steamed broccoli into the spaghetti because on its own it was a little boring. Good for a weeknight dinner -fast, filling, and tasty.
This recipe looked bland, so I sauteed crushed garlic and italian seasoning in olive oil, added ricotta and parm., and salt/pepper to taste. It was okay, but still lacked something. If I were to make something similar again, I think some bacon, butter, and a whole handful of fresh basil chopped up would do the trick to make it more flavorful.
sorry, but this was lame... and i even doctored it up! i'd add some bacon and some peas next time.
Wow...my mom used to make this pasta dish only she used elbow macaroni or small tube pasta. Delish. I sauted the garlic in olive oil as I don't like it raw. Adds more flavour. Brings back childhood memories. This dish is meant to be simple and not overpowering . So if you like your pasta more spicy or kicked up , this is not the recipe for you.I made it for my picky kids and they had seconds.
Sorry But This Didn't Taste Very Well. It Was Very Bland Tasting. I Had To Put A Lot Of Salt And Parmesan Cheese On It For It To Taste Ok
Super bland, but after adding a whole lot of garlic (I fried it in some olive oil first) and fresh basil, it was alright. I put a spoonful of sun-dried tomato pesto over it and served it along side of a super-rich entree, and the light taste complimented the meal well. 2 stars because the recipe leaves much to be desired when prepared as-is.
