Healthy Ricotta Linguine with Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes

Course: Entree
Author: Jenn


  • 1 13.25-oz box linguine pasta (I love Dreamfield's Healthy Carb Linguine)
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans trimmed and halved lengthwise
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 lemon zested


  • Cook pasta according to package directions, cooking until al dente. When finished, drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water. Transfer the hot pasta to a large bowl and add the ricotta cheese. Toss to combine.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the green beans, garlic, salt and pepper and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add the reserved cup of pasta water and continue cooking until tender, about another 4 minutes.
  • Add the pasta with ricotta to the pan with the green beans and toss to combine. Add the tomatoes and gently toss, cooking until slightly softened. Transfer to a serving plate and top with lemon zest. Serve and enjoy!
