Method

Place tomatoes, olives, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large non-reactive bowl and mix well.

Cover and let sit at room temperature for at least 2 and up to 6 hours.

The salt will draw out the juices from the tomatoes.

Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain.

Mix ricotta, prosciutto and basil into the fresh tomato mixture.

Add the hot cooked pasta and stir to coat pasta with sauce.

Top with Pecorino Romano and serve immediately.
