3 ½ ounce (100 grams) mature salt ricotta cheese
2 garlic cloves

Wash the cherry tomatoes, quarter them and remove seeds. Let garlic fry lightly in a pan together with a piece of chile pepper; then remove them and add the tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and keep on cooking, half-covered, for about 20 minutes, stirring now and then. At the end of cooking, add the oregano. Meanwhile boil cavatelli in abundant salt water.
