Gluten free pasta laced with creamy ricotta and rich swiss chard is the perfect easy weeknight winter dinner idea.
I add just a pinch of red pepper flakes for some heat and a big squeeze of lemon juice to lighten the dish up. No pasta dish is complete with out a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. I like to keep it to a light dusting but you can add as much as you like.
The ricotta can get a bit thick with the pasta so make sure to reserve at least 1/2 cup of pasta water to add. After tossing the past and ricotta I always add about 1/4-1/3 cup of the water to loosen it up and make a delightful creamy sauce.
I love this easy and quick dinner for weeknights. The recipe comes together in just a few minutes. I also love that there is no fussy prep work. Just rough chop the Swiss chard and throw it all together.
This meal is perfect for those cold winter nights when you just can’t muster up the energy to fix dinner. It’s warm and comforting yet super quick to make.
