large handful fresh herbs (basil, parsley, cilantro, or a mix), rough chopped
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Add all the tomatoes and cook for 5-8 minutes, or until they brown a little and begin to burst. At this point, generously salt the pasta water and cook noodles according to package directions (about 3-4 minutes). Meanwhile, turn the burner with the tomatoes down to low, then stir in minced garlic, herbs, salt, & pepper. When pasta is done, drain and add it to the tomatoes along with 2 more Tbsp olive oil. Toss gently, then place on serving dish and garnish with more fresh herbs and shaved or grated Parmesan cheese.
