Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling, salted water according to the package directions. Meanwhile, bring the tomato sauce to a simmer in a large, heavy sauté pan. Drain the pasta when it is al dente. Immediately add the pasta to the sauce and toss to combine. Arrange on individual plates, divide the ricotta among them, and drizzle with the oil. Top with plenty of Parmegiano and serve immediately.
