      This pasta came out really good. The ricotta gave a very creamy texture with a pesto tang in the background. The only thing not to forget is salt! Used Penne pasta for this. Made this for potato/pasta challenge .

      My kind of dish. Who needs meat? The flavors of the pesto blended beautifully with the creaminess of the ricotta cheese making this a very enjoyable dish! Thanks so much for sharing this simple yet delicious recipe that was ready in a flash.

      This made for a quick, easy, fresh tasting dinner last night. I had about a cup of fresh ricotta that needed using, and used fresh basil from my garden. We used linguine noodles. Everyone enjoyed. I served with a tomato avocado salad. Thanks!
