Easy Peasy Orecchiette with Rocket, Parmesan & Tomatoes

Hi guys,
This shouldn't even be classified as a recipe because it is so easy. I had this at a restaurant a few months ago and it tasted so nice and is such a light meal. I decided to try and recreate it. Orecchiette is my favourite type of pasta but you can always replace it with a different kind.
(I used 250g for two people which was too much/enough for leftovers)
(however much/many you want!)
Parmesan shavings
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Boil water for the orecchiette and follow the instructions on however long it takes to cook. Add a tiny bit of salt and olive oil to the water.
Once the pasta is almost done, chop the tomatoes and put them in a frying pan with some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook on medium heat for about two minutes.
Assemble your plate! I put some rocket on the bottom then added the orecchiete, the tomatoes and a bit more rocket and mixed it all together. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over it and add a bit of pepper. Then add some parmesan shavings and voilà, done!
If you want to add some crunch, you could toast a few pine nuts and add them too.
