Prepare roasted tomatoes: Preheat oven to 425*F. Core tomatoes and cut in half or quarters, depending on size. Squeeze gently to get rid of seeds. Place oil, garlic and basil in non-metallic bowl. Add tomatoes and toss well. Place, skin side up, in a non-metallic baking dish. Bake until the skin darkens, carmelizing to a deep glossy brown, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Chop tomatoes and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine ricotta, parmesan and oregano. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well. Toss pasta with ricotta mixture and tomatoes.
