Preparation

for 4 servings

Step

1

Of 3

Cook the pasta

For this recipe, you can use any type of pasta you prefer. We like fusilli as they englobe the sauce perfectly.

Cook the pasta for 2 minutes less than the package says. Set aside to cool, rinsing it with some cold water to stop the cooking process

Step

2

Of 3

Prepare the sauce

First of all, wash the cherry tomatoes and basil perfectly and dry them well with a dish towel.

Blend the cherry tomatoes with the basil, ricotta cheese, olive oil and pepper in a blender. At first you will struggle a bit, but after a few minutes you will be able to blend everything well.

Assemble the dish

Drain the fusilli and pour them into a serving dish, keeping some of the cooking water aside.

Dress the fusilli with the fresh tomato cream and salted ricotta sauce.

Mix well, if necessary add a little cooking water to make the dish creamier.

If still warm, put in the fridge for a few minutes and serve with garnish of freshly shaved ricotta and a basil levae if available.
