This easy recipe for sheet pan broccoli ricotta pasta mixes tender pasta with crispy roasted broccoli and dollops of creamy ricotta for a fun weeknight supper!


  • 2 pounds broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 12 ounces campanelle pasta
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 ounces really good ricotta cheese


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 and line a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil.
  2. Put the broccoli, olive oil and sea salt in a mixing bowl and toss until the broccoli is coated with the olive oil.  Spread the broccoli in a single layer on that baking sheet.
  3. Pop the baking sheet in the oven and roast the broccoli until it is starting to get crispy, about 20 minutes.  Take it out and set aside.

  7. Turn the oven on to broil and roast until everything is sizzling and starting to get a little golden, about 3-5 minutes.
  8. Serve on warmed plates.
