Entrée Pasta

Whole-Wheat Linguine with Green Beans, Ricotta, & Lemon

Finally am back to a cooking routine and am very happy!

Tonight I made a recipe from Giada DeLaurentiis that I found on foodnetwork.com (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/whole-wheat-linguine-with-green-beans-ricotta-and-lemon-recipe/index.html).  I was a little worried that the sauce wouldn’t be great since it was just ricotta and some cooking liquid from the pasta, but it came out good.  I added a little more ricotta than it called for and also used grape tomatoes rather than cherry ones.  To save time, I bought a bag of already trimmed and washed green beans.  I was definitely satisfied after we ate.  Best part is that it’s 4 total servings and each is only 4 Weight Watchers Points.  I was shocked!  (The only ingredients with points values were the ricotta and the olive oil.  Apparently, 12 ounces of whole-wheat linguine is 0 points?!)

Here’s my version:

And here’s Giada’s:
