Warm tomato and ricotta pasta salad

Making the breadcrumbs was the worst! I ended up with a blister (a serious one) on my thumb. This has something to do with how they are made - from toasted bread, crushed in my hands.

Anyway, the general idea is that you toast bread, make breadcrumbs. While the bread is toasting you chop up the tomatoes and marinate them in the appropriate vinegar and herbs.

Cook some pasta and toss the tomatoes through, along with some crumbled ricotta and then top with the breadcrumbs, and basil (assuming you have it!)

I cooked the tomatoes a bit - just because I like my dinner super hot, not just warm.

I hate cooking rigatoni. It is too thick and falls apart as it cooks. Yuck.
