Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Add 3 tbsp kosher salt.
Whisk ricotta and 3 tbsp olive oil together in a bowl. Add parmesan, whisking until incorporated. Whisk in 2 tbsp warm water to loosen consistency.

Cook pasta until al dente. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup of pasta water.
Add pasta and reserved water to the squash, stirring and tossing to mix well. Cover, reduce heat to low, and steam together 2 minutes.
Season with sea salt and pepper, transfer to serving bowl. Garnish with dollops of whipped ricotta and serve immediately.
