Pasta with Ricotta, Broccoli and Tomatoes

This simple and inexpensive whole wheat pasta meal is creamy without feeling heavy like an Alfredo sauce.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Prepare whole-wheat pasta noodles per package directions.
  2. While cooking, steam the broccoli and slice the grape tomatoes into halves and set both aside.
  3. After draining the pasta, immediately stir in the ricotta so it melts over the pasta. Stir in the broccoli and tomatoes.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste and red pepper flakes for zip!
  5. Note: despite the simple ingredients list, these nutrient-packed foods provide whole grains, fiber and calcium.

I'd try it, the numbers are about right, but I would use corn pasta not wheat pasta. Kate 1962
