- 1 1/4 cups part skim ricotta cheese

- 2 cups cooked broccoli
- 4 tbsps parmesan cheese
- Prepare whole-wheat pasta noodles per package directions.
- While cooking, steam the broccoli and slice the grape tomatoes into halves and set both aside.
- After draining the pasta, immediately stir in the ricotta so it melts over the pasta. Stir in the broccoli and tomatoes.
- Add salt and pepper to taste and red pepper flakes for zip!
