  • 3/4 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 cups Homemade Ricotta recipe

Method

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente, about 8 minutes. Reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid, drain and return pasta to pot.

Meanwhile, in skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; toast bread crumbs, stirring often, until crisp and golden, about 3 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Add ricotta, basil and 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid to pasta; toss until coated, adding more liquid if desired.

Transfer to serving dish; sprinkle with 2 tbsp of the bread crumbs. Serve remaining crumbs separately to sprinkle on top.
