  • 1 lb whole wheat or gluten-free pasta
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp diced garlic
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 2 tbs snipped fresh basil leaves


  • In a large pot, cook the pasta according to the package directions.
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the garlic. Cook over low heat for a minute, until tender. Add the cherry tomatoes and cover the skillet. Cook over medium-low heat until a few tomatoes start to crack. Keep an eye on the garlic, and turn the heat down to low if it’s starting to brown.
  • Add the butter and melt it in the pan with the tomatoes.
  • Add the cooked, drained pasta, then add the ricotta. Stir everything together.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Garnish with basil and serve.
