Plunge into ice water; drain when cold. Add pasta to boiling water and cook as directed on pkg. Drain in a colander and cool under running cold water. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, salt and pepper in a large serving bowl. Slowly whisk in oil until blended. Add pasta and tomatoes; toss gently to coat. Marinate at least 15 minutes, tossing occasionally.
