Do you have a friend who is always turning heads? When it comes to pasta, ricotta is the pal who always steals the show. Add a generous dollop and people start staring. What’s not to love about a fluffy cloud of cheese perfectly positioned over a pile of mushroom ravioli dressed with a creamy tomato sauce? Just give folks at the table a heads-up before serving…We don’t want anyone getting whiplash!

• Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry produce. • Cut any larger tomatoes in half lengthwise. Open ricotta; stir in 1 tsp olive oil (2 tsp for 4 servings) and a pinch of salt and pepper.
• Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add tomatoes and half the Italian seasoning (all for 4 servings); cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. • Stir in stock concentrate, cream cheese, half the marinara (all for 4), and ½ cup water (1⁄3 cup for 4). Bring to a simmer and cook until the cream cheese has melted and sauce has thickened, 1-3 minutes. • Immediately remove from heat.
• Once water is boiling, add ravioli to pot. Cook until tender and floating to the top, 3-4 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.
• Add drained ravioli and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) to pan with sauce; toss to coat. If sauce is too thick, stir in reserved pasta cooking water 1 TBSP at a time until pasta is coated in a creamy sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper. • Divide pasta between bowls. Dollop ricotta in the center. Season with pepper and serve.
