Fresh Tomato and Ricotta Whole Wheat Pasta


Serves 1


  • 125g. whole wheat short pasta
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 5-7 cocktail tomatoes, quartered
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 100 g. frozen spinach, minced
  • 19g. fresh basil, minced
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup fresh ricotta cheese


  1. Cook the whole wheat pasta al dente [a little shorter than the package directions say]
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat
  3. Add garlic and reduce heat to medium-low
  4. Cook for about 5 minutes until oil becomes fragrant. Be sure to watch the garlic so it doesn’t burn
  5. Add the tomatoes and season with salt and black pepper
  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes until warmed through
  7. Add pasta, spinach, fresh basils, and grated parmesan. Season again. If the pasta is dry, add more olive oil or 1-2 tablespoons of pasta water to the pasta mixture
  8. Top with dollops of fresh ricotta
  9. Drizzle with more olive oil
  10. Serve
