    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4..
    2. Wrap the whole head of garlic (unpeeled) in aluminium foil and place in a baking tin.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until tender. Once cooked, remove from oven and let it cool for a little bit. Squeeze each garlic clove to obtain the creamy pulp of the garlic. Transfer to a plate and chop a little bit for a more minced texture.

    5. In a medium saucepan, heat the remaining olive oil and cook and stir chopped fresh tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes for about 5 minutes. Add roasted garlic and season with salt, pepper and oregano.
    6. Add cooked pasta, toss well and serve in individual bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
