5. Add the spinach and turn off the heat. Let sit 5 minutes.

6. Stir in the ricotta cheese, red pepper flakes, and 1/2 tsp kosher salt.

8. Add enough pasta water to loosen the cheese and allow it to the coat the pasta. Season pasta with salt & pepper to taste.

9. Put the pasta onto a serving dish and sprinkle the lemon zest on top.
