Broccoli Ricotta Pasta #WeekdaySupper

Broccoli ricotta pasta #weekdaysupper Everyone has that super easy go to recipe that they can whip up in no time for dinner during a busy week.  For me, broccoli ricotta pasta is that recipe and one of my favorites.  I can remember trying it for the first time when my kids were little at a friends house.  My kids weren’t crazy about broccoli but when this dish was put in front of them, they gobbled it right up.   When I asked my friend Darlene how to make it, I couldn’t believe how easy it was.  It has been a Weekday Supper staple in our home ever since.

Not only is this Broccoli Ricotta Pasta Recipe super easy, it is a great way to sneak broccoli into the kids diet.
