After you add the garlic put a good amount of olive oil, pepper, and lotssssss of salt. The salt will draw out the juices from the tomatoes as they sit.
Boil salted water with some olive oil so pasta doesn't stick & cook to al dente. Drain & then toss with the salad. ( this dish is amazing warm, room temperature, or cold! It's your preference.
Add your FRESHLY grated Parmesan and toss some more.. Try not to slip in the big puddle of drool you should be standing it. Enjoy!😊
