Lemon And Spinach Ricotta Recipe – Spinach Pasta Recipe – Lemon Pasta Recipe

Total Time: 15 mins


  • 1/2 lb (8oz/220 grams) pasta (spaghetti, linguine, penne, fusilli…)
  • 1 cup (9oz/250 grams) whole-milk ricotta
  • 8 oz (230 grams) fresh baby spinach, washed
  • 1/3 cup (35 grams) grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra to serve
  • 1 unwaxed lemon, zest and juice
  • 3 lemon wedges, to serve (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or pressed
  • salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions until al dente.Meanwhile, make the ricotta sauce.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, olive oil, parmesan cheese, garlic, lemon zest and juice. Season with 1/4 tsp of salt and a good pinch of pepper.
  3. Stir until well combined, taste and make sure you’re happy with the seasoning.
  4. In the last minute of the pasta’s cooking time, reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water, then and add spinach to the pot. Stir well and push the leaves down to submerge them in water.
  5. After 1 minute, drain and return pasta and spinach to the same pot.
  6. Add the ricotta sauce and part of the reserved cooking water. Stir well to evenly coat the pasta in the sauce, add more cooking water as needed, you want a smooth and creamy texture.
  7. Serve immediately and garnish with grated or shaved Parmesan cheese, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and lemon wedges if desired (for extra freshly squeezed juice, but I leave it optional). Plus, I love adding a good pinch of red pepper flakes, you might give it a go. Enjoy!

Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe

Total: 65 mins


  • 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (200 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (120 grams)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (70 grams)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 + 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, divided


  • ½ cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan (1 lb. loaf pan) with cooking spray oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients including flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk together until evenly distributed and set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk well to combine the wet ingredients including milk, oil, egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together using a rubber spatula until just combined and no dry ingredients are visible. Do not overmix (overmixing will make the bread denser and firmer). Fold in 1 cup of blueberries until evenly mixed.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and add the remaining 1/2 cup blueberry on top.
  6. Bake for 55 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool for 10-15 minutes, then invert to remove the loaf.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature. Drizzle with glaze if desired.


  1. In a small bowl, add the icing sugar. Slowly add in the lemon juice and continually stir until smooth and desired consistency is achieved. The icing should be thick but can still be poured. If the icing is too runny, add more sugar. If it is too thick, add some more lemon juice.
  2. Evenly drizzle glaze over the lemon loaf and allow it to set and dry before slicing the loaf. To completely coat the loaf, then double the amount of icing.
