How to prepare gluten-free pasta with ricotta and spinach

  1. First, cook the pasta in abundant salted water for the time indicated on the package. I recommend cooking because gluten-free pasta behaves differently from traditional pasta.
  2. In a separate pan, put the spinach without adding water. Cover and let them dry over medium heat.
  3. Then remove the lid so that the excess water evaporates. Add the butter and the garlic clove. If you do not like its flavor, leave it whole, so as to remove it when cooked, otherwise chop it finely. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the ricotta to the spinach pan and mix well.
  5. When the pasta is ready, drain it with a skimmer directly into the sauce. If it is too thick, add a few tablespoons of cooking water .
  6. Spread out on plates and complete with grated cheese as you like.

The pasta can be kept for a maximum of 1 day in the fridge , well covered with cling film. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer.
