orecchiette pasta with sauteed asparagus, lemon, herbs, whipped ricotta, and homemade breadcrumbs
I find this amount of ricotta to work well in most food processor sizes (I used a standard 8-cup bowl). If you don’t have enough ricotta, it will be difficult to blend, especially in larger food processors. However, you most likely won’t use all of the whipped ricotta for 2 servings. You can save any leftover in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It is great spread onto toast!
