Pasta with Onion, Tomato and Ricotta Sauce

Pasta is the perfect fast food – in the time it would take for take out or delivery you can whip up something delicious and much healthier. This one was adapted from Patricia Wells Trattoria cookbook. If you don’t have crushed tomatoes just push them through a ricer or blitz in the blender.

3 TBSP fresh parsley
