Rigatoni with Cherry Tomatoes, Summer Squash & Ricotta
Also tossed with green garlic and fresh herbs, this spectacular summer pasta is light and colorful.
1 pound rigatoni pasta
1 pint grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
2-3 summer squash, washed and sliced into ¼-inch-thick slices
½ cup Farm & Larder ricotta
3 tablespoons minced green garlic
1 tablespoon freshly-chopped mint
2 tablespoons each freshly-chopped parsley and basil
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus an additional tablespoon for finishing
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Cook rigatoni for 5-7 minutes in a pot of heavily salted water until al dente, just cooked through with a bit of bite left. Drain, and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add in garlic and summer squash and sauté until al dente, about 5-7 minutes. Add pasta, sliced tomatoes, and fresh herbs to pan and toss together. Finish with ricotta cheese and an additional swirl of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper as necessary.
