  1. The tomato and mascarpone sauce would also be lovely with pieces of pan-fried cod or king prawns. Serve with steamed green vegetables and basmati rice instead of the pasta.

  1. This dish is an example of elegance and simplicity on a plate. From the intense sweetness of the roasted tomatoes coupled with the creamy ricotta. which is perfectly complemented by the complex fruity/nutty taste of parmesan shavings and rocket.
