No secret: I eat pasta every day of the week, if not month.

Seriously, just give me a big plate of pasta, no matter which pasta it is:

My Spaghetti aglio e olio, or the Pizza Spaghetti, my Million Dollar Spaghetti or the Taco Spaghetti all do the trick. 

And so does my Hawaiian Macaroni Salad, the Southern Mac and Cheese, or Toasted Ravioli.

Tips and tricks.

In many of my recipes I always cook my pasta before, but I find the texture will be better for this Ricotta Pasta if the pasta is still warm. If you want go with pre-cooked pasta I would suggest to warm it on the stove or even microwave so the everything will mix better.

Any pasta as I said is great, because this sauce will hold and mixed greatly with any shape and form, yum.
