Tools You’ll Need
- Large pot
- Small bowl
- Cutting board
Ingredients You’ll Need
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1-2 tbsp of lemon juice
- 2 cups of whole milk ricotta
- ½ to 1 cup of pasta water reserve
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- Olive oil
- ⅓ cup of parmigiano reggiano, extra for garnishing
- 1lb pasta (can use Gluten-free)
***Note: The dish can easily be made gluten free. The only ingredient that you’ll need gluten-free is the pasta. All other ingredients are already gluten-free friendly. I always use Barilla’s gluten-free pasta since it’s the best I’ve found. It’s made out of corn and rice. Pay attention to the cook time and like any pasta, don’t overcook it! Cook to the recommended al dente time. Barilla is the only pasta I’ve found that holds together very well after cooking. However, the taste is not the same the next day.
