Tonight's dinner was brought to me by Michele Di'Bartolo's The Sicilian Kitchen:
Ricotta and Pasta
Spinach and Chilli
The beauty of this meal is that it is what it says it is - for the Ricotta and Pasta you cook pasta and add it to ricotta that's been mashed with a little salt and some of the pasta cooking water. The Spinach and Chilli similarly is chilli and garlic fried slowly in olive oil with spinach added (actually Michele blanches the spinach first but I'm lazy). And there you have it a very elegant and delicious meal.
