Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    2 oz. Barilla PLUS Farfalle (bowties)
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 cloves of garlic, minced
    2 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise and then sliced into reasonably thick pieces
    1 cup frozen sweet yellow corn kernels
    1/2 cup of Newman's Own Alfredo Sauce (or you could make your own)
    1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese (I made this at home out of whole milk only)
    2 tbsp parmesan cheese (optional)

Tips

Making your own ricotta or alfredo sauce is pretty easy, although it does require some planning in advance.


Directions

Cook pasta in boiling water.

In a pan on medium high heat, add olive oil and garlic and cook for 1 min. Then add zucchini and corn and cook for another few minutes (until zucchini reaches desired tenderness; I tend to leave mine with a little crispness). Turn off heat and add the alfredo and ricotta, stirring until the veggies are coated. Add pasta and toss until coated.

Serve with parmesan on top.

Serving Size: 4 small entree servings (or two larger ones)

Number of Servings: 1
