Quick Lunch from the Garden

I'm getting an abundant harvest right now from my cherry tomato plant.
So I decided to use some up at lunch today by scaling down my 
One Pot Pasta recipe into a single lunch portion. 

The original recipe calls for 12 oz. of linguine and 12 oz. of tomatoes.
I took that 1 to 1 ratio and used 1 cup of small pasta and 1 cup of tomatoes.
I scaled down the other ingredients, covered it all with water,
and boiled for ten minutes.

It was tasty!
