    2      tablespoons   chopped fresh marjoram
    2      tablespoons   chopped fresh thyme
    2      tablespoons   chopped fresh sage
    2      teaspoons     finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
      1/2  cup           extra virgin olive oil
                         coarse salt and freshly ground pepper -- to
                         taste
    1      pound         stracci (fresh egg pasta cut into 4 by
                         -- 1-inch strips with a fluted

      1/2  cup           freshly grated pecorino romano
    2      medium        size ripe tomatoes -- peeled, seeded and
                         -- chopped
 
 In a bowl large enough to contain all the ingredients, combine the
 herbs, olive oil, salt and pepper. Set aside.
 
 Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and the stracci. Cook,
 stirring frequently, until the stracci is al dente, tender yet firm to
 the bite, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain well.
 
 Add the pasta to the bowl with the herb mixture and toss well. Add the
 cheese and toss again.
 
 Scatter the tomatoes over the pasta and serve immediately.
