  • 12 ounces ricotta
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon powder cinnamon



In a large bowl, combine butter, ricotta, sugar, and cinnamon to reach a creamy mixture

Toss rigatoni cooked and drained into bowl and mix quickly. For a creamier dish, if needed, add some water from the pasta, mix again and serve at once..
