What To Make: My Easy Arugula Ricotta Pasta Parcels Recipe

By Bianca Osbourne

As a Private Chef, Meal Planning Guru and On-Air Cooking Expert I’m a lover of cooking once and eating many (MANY) times, because even though I love cooking, I don’t want to be doing it all the time #RealTalk. This is why this recipe is one to love.

Everyday eating should be easy, or easier than the fancy eats on the weekends, because everyday  life isn’t an issue of Bon Appetit Magazine; so having recipes like these Arugula Pasta Parcels are a great addition to your recipe repertoire. It’s crowd pleasing–this was made for a 6 and 10 year old and they loved it–it’s flavourful and it’s impressive to look at!

This recipe is Lasagna’s cool cousin, because everyone has seen a lasagna (read: boring) but this is an interesting twist on a classic.

A few recipe notes:

Arugula Ricotta Pasta Parcels

What You Need:

What To Do:

In a saute pan heat the oil on medium high heat, add the ground beef and cook through completely. Add the tomato sauce and season to taste. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine the ricotta, dried herbs, maple, lemon and season to taste. Add the pasta (bonus if it’s still hot!) and arugula; toss to coat and combine all in the ingredients.

In an oven safe dish, add tomato meat sauce to the bottom of the dish, followed by the pasta mix. To make the parcels, using tongs grab a bunch of pasta noodles and add to the baking dish spinning the noodles in the little parcels. Do this until the dish is full, ladle the remaining sauce over the pasta and sprinkle with parmesan and breadcrumbs.

STOP: if you want to make this ahead, this is where you stop; cool it completely, wrap it tightly and store it in the refrigerator or freezer.

Preheat oven to 400F.

Bake the pasta for 25 minutes, or until the top is lovely and browned.

Serve & Enjoy!
