How to Make It
Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise, parallel to the stems and gently press the seeds out. Cut the flesh into 1/2-inch pieces and put them in a bowl large enough to hold the finished dish. Add the remainder of the salad ingredients and toss well.
Bring 8 cups of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, stir well, bring back to a boil and boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Drain in a colander and add immediately to the tomato salad. Toss thoroughly and divide the pasta among four soup plates. Sprinkle generously with the Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
