  • Roast in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Reduce to 150°C (300°F) Gas 2 and cook for a further 1-1½hours until the tomatoes are golden, glossy and reduced in size by about one-third. Remove from the oven and keep them warm.
  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, or according to the packet instructions.
  • After about 5 minutes, put the remaining oil into a large, deep frying pan, heat well, add the garlic and fry gently for 2 minutes. Add the chilli and cook for a further minute.
  • Drain the cooked pasta, reserving 4 tablespoons of the cooking water. Add the pasta and the reserved cooking water to the frying pan, then add the chopped oregano, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Toss over the heat for about 2 minutes.
  • Divide between 4 serving plates or bowls and serve topped with the tomatoes and ricotta and a light dusting of Parmesan.
