Rotelle with Ricotta


This simple Rotelle with Ricotta recipe will take around fifteen minute to prepare. Rotelle is simply blended with seasoned creamy ricotta cheese.

You can either use the basil and parsley mixture or a combination of other fresh herbs. Try adding a little fresh mint or dill to liven the dish up a bit. Whatever you use I’m sure you’ll enjoy this simple recipe. After all anything with ricotta is delicious.

You can also substitute the pasta but make sure you use something similar to the rotelle like rotini or even penne pasta will work. As long as it is a type of pasta that will hold the ricotta mixture. Enjoy!
