Servings: 8 people
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine garlic, salt, pasta, tomatoes, half-and-half, 1/2 cup Parmesan, in a greased 9x13-inch baking dish and stir to combine.
Cover with a double layer of foil, crimping tightly around edges to seal. Place dish on the center rack and bake until pasta is tender and liquid is absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.
Remove from oven and carefully remove foil. Spoon ricotta over pasta in large dollops and sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Place baking dish on the uppermost rack and broil on low until ricotta begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and serve.
