EASY SPINACH RICOTTA PASTA

This quick and luxurious Spinach Ricotta Pasta boasts a creamy and ḡarlicky spinach sauce made easy with ricotta cheese.

I looove ricotta cheese. It’s flavor is light and fresh flavor, making it great for warm weather dishes. I’ve tried making my own fresh ricotta in the past, but I haven’t yet been able to achieve the texture or flavor that I like. So, when I saw ricotta on sale at the store, I jumped at the chance to make this recipe for Spinach Ricotta Pasta that has been swimming around in the back of my head for a while.

This recipe makes a super quick garlic ricotta sauce that only takes minutes to prepare. I added my favorite versatile vegetable, frozen spinach, to help get a little green and fiber into the meal. If you’re not into spinach, you could try frozen broccoli florets, but I’d make sure to chop them up into smaller pieces before adding them in. 

This recipe makes about four side dish sized servings (2 oz. of pasta each), but you could beef it up by adding some chicken, or even more vegetables (any grilled vegetable would be awesome with this). Want a little deeper flavor? Try topping it off with some Parmesan. Personally, I liked the light, fresh flavor that ricotta on its own.


And one last note: all ricotta is not equal. I’ve had some brands that are so good I could eat it with a spoon and others that are just dry and tasteless. It may take some experimenting to find one that you really like. And for this Spinach Ricotta Pasta recipe in particular, full fat ricotta is definitely best (lower fat ricotta can sometimes be gritty).
