So easy, quick and delicious you won't believe it! Use a ripe and flavorful fresh tomato in this dish. It's best with fresh basil, but I know it's not always available to everyone and it still tastes great with the dried.
- 1 (9 ounce) packageof refrigerated fettuccine
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3⁄4 cup ricotta cheese
- 3⁄4-1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 large tomatoes, chopped (1-1 1/2 cups)
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped or 3⁄4 teaspoon dried basil
- Cook and drain pasta according to package directions.
- Drain and put back in the saucepan.
- While pasta is cooking, stir together the butter, ricotta and 1/2 cup parmesan.
- Toss this with the hot pasta.
- Put in serving dish or dishes.
- Top with tomato, basil and remaining parmesan.
This looked gorgeous with the sprinkling of fresh tomato and basil over the top of the finished product. If you are looking for a very fast yet very presentable dish, this would certainly do quite nicely. Next time, I'd like to add a bit of sauteed garlic as well, but it is still deserves five stars without any additions or changes. Very tasty!
My friend and I really loved this easy recipe!! The taste is great. Thank you :)
