RICOTTA CHEESE PASTA


This is the simplest but excellent for a quick

meal.

Ricotta cheese is a type of cheese which could

be used in desserts and savoury dishes too.

I made a different creamy blend to this pasta

with chickpea flour. In fact,soaked ground

chick peas will give a hummus like texture.

I used a little of the left over tomato sauce I

made for my previous post on macaroni ( link
