    Elizabeth Fullerton's Note:

    This is a fast way to make spaghetti after work. I know lots of people don't care for the prepared sauces, but there are some good ones out there. It makes it so much easier to make. The ricotta dresses up the dish.

      I was planning a romantic dinner for my boyfriend and me, but I couldn't decide what to make. Of course, I turned to the tried and true Recipezaar. The ricotta spaghetti sounded good, and I knew I could trust Elizabeth's recipes, as I have used them many times before. So I made it, and it was easy and fabulous. My boyfriend really liked it, too. Thank you Elizabeth for the romance help.....let's just say I owe you one ;)

      Wow! It was easy and tasted really good! This is a good meal if you don't have a lot of time, but don't want to sacrifice taste. (It's good as leftovers, too!)
