Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes, Ricotta and Spinach

Stefan doesn’t like pasta very much. If he would have to choose between rice and pasta he would always go for rice. But I’ll try to sneak some spaghetti and co into our dinner as often as possible…

So here is another simple and fresh dinner – great after a busy day at work.
