One of our favorite food and travel writers, Elizabeth Minchilli, lives in Rome. We love following her Instagram stories that document life in Italy. A few weeks ago she was making dinner, and made a simple pasta with radicchio and ricotta. We scribbled down some notes before the story went away and we've slightly adapted the recipe and tested it a few times since then.
This pasta uses ricotta to make a simple, creamy sauce. It's a creative way to use seasonal radicchio. This recipe is an example of one of our favorite things about Italian cooking. So much of their everyday cooking is simple and economical, but the quality of ingredients makes it special. Be sure to find really good ricotta cheese for this.
