  • 1 package 10.5 ounces HemisFares Lumaconi Pasta
  • 1 tablespoon HemisFares 100% Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil Unfiltered
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion diced (about 1/2 of a medium onion)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 can 28 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 8 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella


  • Cook pasta in a large pot according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Using the same pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent, about 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Add the tomatoes, honey, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper and stir. Cover and cook, stirring a few times, for about 8-10 minutes. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  • Return pasta to the pot with the sauce, then add the ricotta and mozzarella and stir until cheese melts.
  • Serve hot. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
