200 g
cow’s milk ricotta
200 g
chicory
40 g
extra virgin olive oil
1
shallot

salt
as desired
basil

Preparation

Thinly slice the scallion and saute in a pan with the oil until golden. Add the most tender leaves of the chicory, reserving a few fresh leaves for the garnish, and cook for a couple of minutes.

 

While the pasta is cooking, soften the ricotta in a bowl by adding a couple of spoonfuls of cooking water from the pasta to give a soft cream.

 

Drain the pasta when al dente, pour into the bowl with the ricotta and add the sauteed scallion and chicory.

 

Serve garnished with the reserved chicory.
