This dish was kind of a lark, not very serious at all. I had been wanting to make mushroom linguine w/ mozzarella, but when I went to wf to get the mozzarella the hand dipped ricotta just looked sooooo ggooooooood I had to try that instead:
I did the mushroom sauce with butter, garlic, onion, and some crushed red pepper. Then I tossed it in the linguine and topped it off with the ricotta. It was a nice, hearty, not too unhealthy dinner. I don't think I love it as much as my chicken sausage linguine, I wouldn't want to eat it that much. But it was fine for one weekend, and to get to try that amazing looking ricotta! It makes me really want to make a mushroom lasagna now. Next weekend?!
