Fill a pot with water, add salt, and bring it to a boil. Add the pasta. Cook until al dente. Drain the pasta and separate it into two bowls, one for the kids and one for the grownups.
For the kids: Pour the olive oil over the pasta, then add the cheese and tomatoes and toss. Salt to taste.
For the grown-ups: While the pasta is cooking, sauté the garlic and chili in the olive oil over medium heat for approximately 2 minutes. Do not let brown. Turn off heat and add the tomatoes to the pan. When the pasta is done, pour in the tomato and oil mixture, add the herbs and toss. Salt and pepper to taste. Add fresh Parmegiano Reggiano (or Parmesan cheese).
