When tomatoes are good, this is super nice. It's a warm dish as opposed to hot, and it is even great when cold as a salad for picnics.

Put your pasta into a large pot of salted boiling water and cook until al dente (check the package for cooking time). While it's cooking, halve the tomatoes, put them into a large bowl, and add your herbs, olive oil, garlic and vinegar, Season to taste, and scrunch with your hands to slightly mush the tomatoes, This can sit now until the pasta's ready. Drain the pasta, and while still steaming hot mix well with the tomatoes, check the seasoning and serve. Easy peasy.
