This is an excellent, quick and easy Jamie Oliver recipe. You could use other pasta but Spaghetti mixes easily with the tomatoes. Delicious with Basil. Haven't tried it with Marjoram yet.
455 g spaghetti 310–400 g cherry tomatoes (red and/ or yellow) 1 cup fresh basil or marjoram leaves 6–8 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 clove garlic, peeled and sliced 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar or red wine vinegar salt and pepper
1. Place pasta in large pan of salted boiling water and cook until al dente. 2. Halve the tomatoes and place in a large bowl with the herbs, olive oil, garlic and vinegar Season to taste. 3. Squash some of the tomatoes with the back of a spoon. 4. When cooked, drain the pasta and while still hot mix well with the tomatoes.
