Cook the orecchiette following pack instructions, then drain, reserving a mugful of the water. Finely chop the cavolo nero stems and leaves, keeping them separate. Heat the olive oil in a wide frying pan and cook the stems, garlic, chilli and shallot over a low heat for 5 mins until softened, then stir in the cavolo nero leaves. Fry until just wilted, then tip in the pasta and toss to combine.
Stir in the lemon zest and juice, and the ricotta along with a splash of the reserved pasta water to loosen, and season. Sprinkle the almonds over the top to serve.
