Spaghetti with Herbed Ricotta and Garlic

Serves 4

Recipe by Rebekah Peppler

INGREDIENTS

1 lb spaghetti

5 cloves garlic

1/2 cup basil leaves

1/2 cup parsley leaves

1 small bunch chives (about 1/2 cup, chopped)

2 cups ricotta cheese

1 tablespoon olive oil

kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

PREPARATION

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, until al dente. Drain through a colander, reserving about a cup of the pasta water.

Thinly slice garlic cloves, and set aside. Slice basil leaves into thin ribbons, and coarsely chop chives and parsley. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the chopped herbs and the ricotta, and mix to combine.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-low heat, and add sliced garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, until garlic is soft, then add the cooked pasta, 1 1/2 cups of the herbed ricotta, and ¼ cup of the reserved pasta water. Toss together and season with salt and pepper. Continue to heat, tossing occasionally, until the cheese has melted and a sauce has formed.

Transfer to a serving bowl and dollop with the remaining 1/2 cup ricotta.

For this recipe, you'll need a 12-inch skillet and a large pot to cook the pasta.

You can get a great skillet here (pictured left, worth the price, will last forever) or a more affordable decent one here. Any stock pot that's at least 8 quarts will work, but a 12-quart pot (pictured right) is your best bet. Get a simple one here.
