1) Preheat oven to 180°C/ gas mark 4. Using your hands, squeeze spinach of all excess liquid.
2) Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and cook for three minutes until they begin to soften. Add garlic and cook for one minute more. Add spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes, half a teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook for an additional two minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool for approximately ten minutes. Add ricotta and stir to combine. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
