bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles for 1 minute. Drain the noodles and put them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain them again and lay on paper towels to dry. lay 3 noodles in the bottom of the prepared glass or metal baking pan.
in a mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, granulated sugar, and egg and beat until almost smooth. in a separate bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, chili powder, and butter and mix well.
in a third bowl, gently fold the raspberries and sliced strawberries into the blueberries, being careful not to crush the raspberries.
