Another terrific recipe from Ina Garten. This takes some time, but it's nearly all hands-off. A great way to use cherry tomatoes from your garden. I did not have any this year, but found some terrific mixed color tomatoes at the market. Obviously, a single color is fine, too!

    Combine the cherry tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, basil, 1 tsp salt and pepper in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for about four hours.

    When ready to serve, cook your pasta in salted water (check package directions) just until al dente. Angel hair pasta cooks very quickly, but you can use any long pasta. Drain well and add to the bowl with the tomatoes.
