This is the ultimate lazy summer dinner. When cherry and sun gold tomatoes are bursting with flavor, slice them and let sit with olive oil and a touch of vinegar. The sweet juices seep out and make an incredible sauce. This is better the longer you can let it sit, but in a pinch you can marinate the tomatoes while you boil the water and cook the pasta. Toss the drained, hot pasta directly into the bowl with the tomatoes and the residual heat from the noodles will gently cook the tomatoes and garlic. This dish is bright, elegant and effortless.
