Simple and tasty, great dish for making in advance, also very colourful...
100ml olive oil
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
4 tsp chopped fresh basil
4 tsp chopped fresh oregano
4 tsp chopped fresh chervil
4 tsp chopped fresh tarragon
2 garlic clove, crushed
600g cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mix together the olive oil, vinegar and mustard in a large bowl, then add the Herbs and garlic and stir well. Finally, stir in the cherry tomatoes and allow to stand for 1 hour.
Meanwhile cook the fettucine in a large pan with plenty of boiling water for 3 minutes, or until just tender.
Drain pasta through a colander then refresh under cold running water to stop it sticking together. Drain well again.
Add the pasta to the dressing and toss together to coat. Season and allow to stand at room temperature for 15-20 minutes to get the fullest flavour out of everything.
Eat cold, or just warmed through under a preheated grill for a few seconds.
