This was so quick and yummy. I used mini penne instead. I think it had the right amount of milk in it for me.

Very good. I'm a real ricotta fan, so this was right up my alley. Unlike the other reviewer, I actually will increase the milk slightly to make a thinner sauce. Delicious and thank you.

This is too easy and fast that I was surprised that it was delicious besides. Next time I will decrease the milk in the sauce but otherwise perfect for a super quick light meal! Thanks for sharing!
