This brings me back to my childhood when mom would whip up something super fast for a weeknight dinner. A quick search in the fridge for a few simple ingredients always resulted in a memorable and satisfying dish. In as little as 15 minutes we were sitting at the table enjoying a meal.
This super easy and quick recipe can be assembled in minutes. In the amount of time it takes to boil water and cook some pasta the condiment can be prepared. It is then added to the pasta with a quick toss and served.
1 lb pasta ( I used Rigatoni)
1 cup fresh ricotta cheese
1 cup fresh, chopped rapini
1 small onion , diced
1 garlic clove, minced or whole
Salt and pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with some fresh grated parmigiano reggiano and serve.
For a little kick, add some crushed chili flakes or your favorite home made chili oil!
