Easy Lemon Ricotta Pasta

Easy Lemon Ricotta Pasta

It has quickly become a family favorite. I like to mix in fresh spinach, but that is optional. I also like to use reduced fat ricotta, but that is also optional. The lemon in it is not overpowering but does add a nice hint of flavor. I’ve always loved lemon-flavored things! The lemon also makes it an excellent year-round dish. It can be refreshing in the summer or comforting in the cold winter months. One tip: don’t skip the salt. This recipe really needs a tad of salt to be as delicious as it’s meant to be.


  • 1 Box Spaghetti (I use gluten-free)
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 15 oz Ricotta
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan
  • 1 Tbsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Cup Fresh Spinach


  1. Boil pasta as instructed.
  2. Zest lemon.
  3. Combine lemon zest, juice from the lemon, garlic, ricotta, grated parmesan, and sea salt. Stir until smooth.
  4. Add 1/2 cup of pasta water and stir until smooth.
  5. Add spinach and stir until the spinach has wilted.
  6. Add in the pasta and stir until it is evenly coated.
  7. Serve immediately. It will thicken up as it sits out.
