Ingredients (click ingredient to buy it)


  • Set a pot of water to boil, season with salt and cook pasta in it for about 10 minutes or until al dente.
  • Meanwhile heat olive oil in a pan, saute garlic, chills and french beans.
  • Turn off heat and add lemon zest and juice (you may add the juice of whole lemon or add some more if you like but my kids doesn't like, ½ lemon is perfect for us)
  • When pasta is cooked, reserve about a cup of pasta water and drain the pasta.
  • Add the cooked spaghetti and the ricotta to the pan, add about half a cup of pasta water.
  • Toss together so the ricotta and water emulsify into a sauce.
  • Adjust seasoning to taste.
  • Drizzle some extra-virgin olive oil, toss and serve immediately... well, take a few photos first, then serve while still hot. :)
  • You may sprinkle with grated parmesan if you have some. Enjoy!
