    Manami's Note:

    This is a nice light pasta - the sauce isn't heavy (or, really, very saucy at all) and the ricotta makes it just a touch creamy. It's also quite healthy. This is one of those recipes that can be made quickly with what you have in the kitchen! Instead of overdoing the pasta - we used whole wheat pasta & bulked it up with veggies and lean chicken breast. The finished dish is very eye appealing and tastes marvelous! :)

      A recipe similiar to what I've played with in the past, but never added the cheese. Very good. Needs a just a little more zip, but not sure what.
