Marinated Tomatoes with Pasta.

I bought some spinach & basil fettucine at the farmer's market this week.  Inspired by a picture on the front cover of this month's Martha Stewart Living, i picked up some yellow & red cherry tomatoes and went home to make this recipe.
  • pasta (spinach & basil fettucine was amazing!)
  • cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, torn
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 T rice vinegar
  • fresh sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper

optional: Parmesan or Asiago cheese, shredded

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Mix other ingredients together, except cheese; once mixed, let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.  Drain cooked pasta. Mix tomato mixture into hot pasta and toss. Sprinkle with cheese, if desired. Serve with a green salad.
