Add olive oil,garlic; sauté until fragrant and sizzling, about 2 minutes. Whisk the cream, egg yolk and ricotta in a bowl until blended; pour into the garlic butter. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir until hot but not boiling. Keep warm over low heat.Meanwhile, cook the pasta, partially covered, until al dente. Reserve about a cup of pasta water before draining in a colander. Pour hot pasta into the cream mixture and toss to coat (still over low heat).
