Easy Ricotta Macaroni

When you’ve run out of basically everything in your fridge, that’s when pasta comes in most handy. Β Let’s face it, pasta is good even if you just top it with butter and salt. Β That said, it willingly accepts just about all flavors, so toss whatever you have in your fridge into the pot, and you’ve got a perfect side dish.

Recently, I was left with close to zero in my fridge; yet, these dregs turned into a very satisfying pasta that I could serve alongside some leftover chicken. ToΒ elbow macaroniΒ add a tough of fat free half and half, a dollop of part skim ricotta, a good shake (or three) of crushed red pepper flakes, and a healthy serving of fresh grated parm.

Done in about 8 minutes and eaten in even less.
