Pasta with Sausages and Cherry Tomatoes

Cooking time: 25 minutes for menu        Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     Cherry tomatoes always appear long before regular tomatoes in the local markets.  They're fun to use: they cook down quickly and add fresh flavor after a winter of using canned tomatoes. They also keep well - but, as with other tomatoes, try to avoid refrigeration.
