Method

  1. Cook the spaghetti to pack instructions. Drain, reserving about 200ml pasta water. 
  2. Meanwhile, put the leftover caponata mixture in a large pan and heat over a low-medium heat for 7-8 mins to warm through. Loosen with the reserved pasta water, then add the cooked pasta and stir well to coat. Divide between 4 bowls; top each with a scoop of ricotta, a drizzle of olive oil and the mint, if you like. Season and serve.

Tip: Swap the mint for basil or flat-leaf parsley
