    16 oz of Farfalle Pasta
    2 Tablespoons of Butter, unsalted
    1 cup of finely chopped onion
    1 Tablespoon of minced garlic
    1 cup of non-fat ricotta cheese (I used whole milk)
    1/2 cup of toasted pine nuts
    2 Tablespoons of dried Parsley
    1/4 cup of lemon juice
    1 teaspoon of dried basil
    1 teaspoon of black pepper (optional)
    1 teaspoon of kosher flake salt (optional)
    10 cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)


Bring a large pot of water to boil; add the noodles and cook for 11-12 minutes, or until al dente.

While pasta is cooking, melt butter in small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and stir for 5 minutes, or until the onion is softened. Add the garlic and blend with onion. Reduce heat to low.

Toast pine nuts in small skillet for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and put in a small bowl.

Add remaining ingredients to onion-garlic mixture, including pine nuts and mix together.

When noodles are done, drain well and return to pot. Toss gently with ricotta mixture and adjust the seasoning to taste.

Top with parmesan cheese.
