Heat the oven to Gas Mark 4, 180ºC, 350ºF. Lightly oil a baking sheet. Cut the tomatoes into 4 bunches, drizzle with a little oil and place in the oven to roast for 10 minutes.

Heat the stock in a pan to a simmer. Melt the butter and remaining olive oil in a large pan, add the shallots and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Add the rice and mix well, coating each grain in oil. Add a ladleful of the hot stock to the rice and mix. Bring to a simmer as the liquid is absorbed by the rice. Continue adding more stock, a ladleful at a time, letting the rice absorb it gradually. Altogether this process will take about 15-20 minutes, until the rice is soft.

Add the spinach, juice, zest, seasoning and half the Parmesan. Mix well for 3 minutes, until the spinach is just wilting. Serve with the remaining Parmesan, topped with the tomatoes.
