Turn oven on to 250!F. and place two soup plates on middle shelf to warm.
In large pot bring water, salt and oil to rolling boil. Add pasta. Cook,
stirring occasionally, until tender but firm (8-12 minutes). Grate Parmesan
and chop chives or other herb while pasta boils. Remove soup plates from
oven; put half the ricotta, herb, butter and I heaping tablespoon Parmesan
in each. Drain pasta, place in soup plates, and season with salt and
pepper. Stir and toss at the table. (I often add fresh tomato slices to the
side of the bowlQ pretty and good.) Keep extra Parmesan close by to add a
finishing touch.
