Ingredients

  • 1 pound orecchiette pasta
  • 15 to 20 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 3/4 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • Bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • Salt

Directions

In a pot of boiling water, cook the pasta for about 8 minutes (remove before the 'al dente' stage). While pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the cherry tomatoes for about a minute. Add salt to taste.

Drain the pasta, reserving some of the pasta water.

Add the cooked pasta and ricotta cheese to the pan. Ladle in some pasta water - the excess pasta water will break down the ricotta cheese, creating a creamy sauce.

Cook pasta in the pan with all the other ingredients for another minute. Top with cilantro, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve immediately.
