This pasta couldn’t be any easier or any tastier! We loved it! It only has 4 ingredients! This is the perfect side dish for grilled chicken, pork, or even steak. It only takes a few minutes to make and tastes great.

This pasta only takes a few minutes to make. Boil the pasta and drain. Toss the cooked pasta with ricotta, lemon juice, and olive oil. That’s it. This is an easy dish to jazz up to your personal preference. This is great with peas, spinach, broccoli, asparagus, or red pepper mixed in. You could even add a little chopped chicken or shrimp for a complete meal.

We’ve made this several times and love it. We like to use whole grain pasta. It is also good with a little parmesan and pepper sprinkled on top. Give this a try the next time you need a quick and delicious pasta side.
