This Cherry Tomato Ricotta Pasta is a delicious way to feature those little tomato gems that hit the markets in the middle of summer. This dish is simple and basic, but it tastes like a fancy restaurant meal.
We returned from vacation a few weeks ago on the eve of my husband’s birthday. I had little energy for cooking a birthday dinner as I faced a nearly empty pantry and refrigerator. I did have a pretty pint of cherry tomatoes from the farm, though, which reminded me of a pasta recipe I used to make from Mark Bittman’s Kitchen Express. That recipe inspired this dish, and my family loved it.
One of these days, you really should try making your own ricotta. I know it sounds like a big thing that only highly ambitious cooks would bother to do. That couldn’t be further than the truth, though.
It’s so simple to make homemade ricotta. It only takes a matter of minutes, and you will not believe how easy it is. You’ll wonder what took you so long to try it. All you need are two basic ingredients, and it’s so delicious. Ricotta is the ingredient that gives this dish its special quality, although the cherry tomatoes are a highlight, too.
