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.


  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until done, about 9 minutes.
  2. Drain but reserve a bit of the water in case the pasta is too dry at the end.
  3. Mix the pasta with the margarine and ricotta.
  4. If it's too dry, add a bit of the hot pasta water to moisten.
