Rigatoni Carbonara with Ricotta

For this one-pot meal inspired by Zuni Cafe’s Judy Rodgers, we cook pasta in a minimal amount of water, concentrating the starch in it to help thicken the sauce. Avoid pre-grated Parmesan; it typically is too coarse and won’t blend well with the sauce. Look for a good-quality ricotta cheese without stabilizers.

Tip

Don’t stop stirring the pasta as the ricotta mixture is added; this prevents it from clumping.
