4 to 6

This extra-light Alfredo sauce for pasta gets its silkiness from fresh ricotta and grated pecorino cheese.

ingredients

  • 3/4 pound fettuccine
  • 1 cup thick whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely grated pecorino cheese, plus more for serving (1 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

directions

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the fettuccine until al dente. Reserve 3/4 cup of the pasta cooking water and drain the fettuccine well.

Add the ricotta and the 1/2 cup of pecorino to the pot along with the reserved pasta cooking water; stir until smooth. Add the fettuccine and the basil, season with salt and pepper and toss. Serve in bowls, passing additional grated pecorino at the table.
