      I was surprised at how simple and delicious this was! I used real butter and added fresh garlic along with salt and pepper. I also followed JuliJ's advice and sprinkled a bit of oregano on top. A great quick meal that tastes like you spent more time than you did.

      I haven't tried this recipe specifically, but we have pasta and ricotta cheese at my fiance's parent's house every year around Easter and it is wonderful. It's made basically the same way. Thanks for the recipe. This one's a keeper for sure. I'm going to try it with brown rice because I've been trying to stay away from pasta lately.
