Now THIS is one of my favorite recipes ever. And it’s oh-so-easy! Very fresh and summery.

1 box orecchiette
~1 c ricotta
4 ripe tomatoes
Garlic to taste (raw)
Large amounts of fresh basil
6 tbs olive oil
Salt & pepper
Parmesan (to top, optional)

Marinate the tomatoes, garlic, basil, oil, salt, and pepper, for 15 minutes. Add ricotta, and let marinate while boiling water for the pasta. Cook pasta, let sit for 15 min, mix, eat! It’s great lukewarm or chilled.

I had enough homemade ricotta left over from last weekend to make a half batch of this. I also had green garlic from the farmer’s market, which I subbed for the regular garlic. I probably would NOT use green garlic again, as it was a bit chewier than expected (late season?).

Verdict: make again! It’s one of my favorite dishes.
