  1. Heat oven to 150C/140C fan/gas 2. Reserve 6 tomatoes and cut the rest in half. Place the tomato halves, cut-side up, in a roasting tin.

  2. Mix together the vinegar and 2 tbsp olive oil. Drizzle all over the tomatoes and lightly season. Cook for about 1 hr until they are beginning to dry out a little (which really concentrates their sweet flavour).

  3. Meanwhile, chop the reserved tomatoes into quarters and tip into a bowl. Add the eggs, parsley and some seasoning, then combine. Brush a medium non-stick frying pan with some of the remaining oil. Place over a medium heat, pour in 1-2 spoonfuls of the egg mixture and swirl to cover the base. Cook for 2 mins until golden, then flip over with a palette knife and heat for just 1 min to cook the other side. Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining mixture. You will be able to make 3-4 omelettes, depending on the size of your pan.

  4. In a small bowl, mix together the ricotta, half the oven-dried tomatoes, the Parmesan and olives. Lay the omelettes on a board and divide the cheese mix between them. Roll up like a cigar (wrap in cling film and chill if serving later) and cut into 3cm pieces. Push a skewer through to hold the omelette together, top with an oven-roasted tomato half and serve.

We really liked these. I made them as part of a small selection of tapas for a starter, halving the recipe to make 12 pieces. Perfect for when you have guests as you can make the omelette spirals well in advance and even assemble them ahead of time. Be careful with the roasted tomatoes as I found they stuck a bit to the roasting tin but could be eased off with a spatula. I didn't have any ricotta so used cream cheese instead, which worked.
