Cut the tomatoes into bite sized pieces: have the grape tomatoes the long way, half the small cherry tomatoes, quarter the larger ones, so they end up uniform-ish, but pretty.
Whisk together the ingredients for the vinaigrette, drizzling in the olive oil last while whisking constantly to thicken and make a bit of an emulsion.
Cook the pasta according to package directions. (Literally, this is 60 seconds in the microwave)
Toss everything together in a large bowl: tomatoes, pasta, vinaigrette, basil, and cheese. Taste for seasoning. Serves 2-3 as a main dish, 4-5 as a side.
