Pasta and Ricotta Cheese
1 cup ancini di pepe pasta (or other small pasta)
2 tsp butter
1/2 cup ricotta cheese

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until done, about 9 minutes. Drain but reserve a bit of the water in case the pasta is too dry at the end. Mix the pasta with the butter and ricotta. If it's too dry, add a bit of the hot pasta water to moisten.
