Caper fish with tomato and ricotta pasta - Long pasta with roast tomato and caper sauce, lemon ricotta and pan fried fish. Served with a side of sautéed vegetables.
1. Set oven to 200ºC. Roughly chop tomatoes, place in a baking dish with drained capers and 1/4 cup olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 15 minutes.

2. Combine ricotta with lemon zest, juice of half lemon and thyme leaves. Season with salt and pepper (see notes). Remove tomatoes from oven and spoon ricotta over the top. Return to cook for an extra 10 minutes, or until golden. 


3. Bring a saucepan of water to boil. Cook pasta for 3-4 minutes, or until al dente. Toss with 1 tbsp olive oil.
