Using Ricotta intrigued us to try this recipe. We kept true to the recipe but used spaghetti and regular onion (on hand). The sauce never really thickened so I would suggest doubling the flour. The ricotta cheese made this dish taste gritty and I think if made again, we would substitute with Parmesan cheese. Overall a nice recipe, just needs some tweaking. Made for PRMR
