I know that you can be tired when you come back home after work and especially after this long cloudy week but this is a very easy, express and fragrant recipe to start cooking with me so no EXCUSE!
Go to a wonderful farmers' market or to the closest supermarket and be sure to put into your basket (recipe for 2):
200 gr bucatini (spaghetti or spaghettoni)
120 gr ricotta
black pepper to grind coarsely (Sichuan pepper would be the best and finest choice)
chives (fresh or dried)
While pasta is cooking, put in a bowl little pieces of chives or the dried ones, ricotta, salt and 8/10 spoon of the pasta cooking water. Mix to have a soft and plain cream.
Drain pasta, turn the stove off and add the cream. Mix, moving your pot from one side to another and from the bottom to the top.
Serve with lemon zest, the black pepper, coarse ground and a drizziling of evo (extra virgin olive oil).
