  • Whisk ricotta, grated Grana padano, turmeric, and black pepper together in a bowl. Stir in enough pasta water to give the sauce a creamy consistency.

  • Drain the pasta, reserving a bit more pasta water. Fold the pasta into the sauce, adding a bit of pasta water if necessary. Season with salt.

I followed the recipe exactly and we loved this! I added chicken sausage, but cooked separately and added at the end. The flavor was surprisingly good ( I worried about the turmeric) and I'll definitely be making this again. I think nutmeg would be a good addition and will try that soon. Read More

I followed the recipe and did not alter anything. Although I like all the ingredients, this was BAD. Read More

I used a 16oz box of fusilloni and adjusted the rest of the ingredients accordingly. A 16oz box does not need anymore than 2 cups of ricotta and only 2 tsp of turmeric. The recipe needs more than a pinch of salt rather it needs a least a tsp of salt. I also cooked the fusilloni in chix stock for additional flavor. I will make it again. Read More

I used cottage cheese because I wanted to use what was in the house. I thought it was very good, interesting and nice flavor. Would definitely make it again. Read More
