- Fine Sicilian Sea Salt, to taste
- Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Heat oven to 450F.
While the pasta is cooking, mix together in a medium bowl the Ricotta, half the Parmesan, egg, salt, pepper, and parsley.
Coat the bottom of a baking dish or a pan with 1 cup of the pasta sauce and then set aside.
Spoon the filling into a large plastic food storage bag and trim the corner.
