Yummy Wednesday - Funky Spaghetti

Mmmm... I was given a bag full of fresh, ripe, beautiful tomatoes of varying sizes and colors - and found the perfect pasta to use them in (on the Oprah show, of all places!)! Give this Jamie Oliver recipe a try - you won't be disappointed!Funky Spaghetti

1 pound spaghetti or linguine
11 to 14 ounces cherry tomatoes , red and yellow
2 handfuls of fresh marjoram and basil , leaves picked
6 to 8 glugs extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic (peeled and finely chopped)
Splash of red wine vinegar
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Parmesan cheese, freshly grated (optional)

Put pasta in large pot of boiling water and cook until al dente.
Halve tomatoes, put in bowl and add herbs, olive oil, garlic and vinegar.
Season to taste, then scrunch tomatoes until slightly mushed.
Drain pasta, and while still steaming, mix with tomatoes.
Separate onto plates and serve (with Parmesan, if you like!).

Makes 3-4 servings.
