  1. Preheat the oven. Place the red onion and tomatoes in an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle on 2 tsp dried oregano, drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes, then add the chicken pieces and roast for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables begin to char.
  2. While the chicken and vegetables are in the oven, cook the tagliatelle according to the packet instructions.
  3. Toss the tagliatelle with the roasted chicken, tomatoes and onion and with the pesto. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately topped with the Parmesan shavings, if using.
