The World According To Penne

Penne pasta is a product of Naples, Italy. The pasta was created to remind the clever Neapolitans of the days when their ancestors dipped feather quilled pens into bottles of ink in order to communicate the written word. Although the pasta has an air of delicacy, it is able to hold its weight from the lightest to the heaviest of sauces.

Deliberating over how to begin a meal, it is not easy unless it happens to be a soup that can be light enough to be served as an appetizer or stand alone as an entree.

Penne Pasta Soup
(Serves 4 bowls or 6 cups)

3-cups swiss chard, julienned(cut into long strips)
3 or 4 cloves garlic
1-Tlb. olive oil

4-14oz. cans chicken broth
2-cups water
1-8oz. can Italian tomatoes with basil
2-whole carrots, sliced thin,precooked
1/2-cup parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. dried basil

Directions: In a dutch over or a soup pot:
Heat the olive oil and saute the onion and the garlic until they are wilted. Add the precooked carrots and the swiss chard. Add the chicken broth and the water. Let the ingredients simmer(medium-low) in the broth until they are tender. Add the cooked penne pasta, the canned Italian tomatoes with basil and the dried basil. Simmer on low for an additional twenty minutes. When all of the ingredients are finished cooking, ladle into soup bowls or soup cups and sprinkle the parmesan cheese on the top of the soup. Serve with Italian bread and some ripe olives.

A rich dense portabella mushroom sauce works well with the delicate balance of penne pasta.

2-cups portabella mushrooms, sliced

1-tsp. flour
1-cup half and half

Boil the penne pasta in salted water and drain it in a strainer.After the pasta is drained put into an oiled baking dish and pour the mushroom sauce over it. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for thirty minutes.

A ham and cheese sauce is for those times when a meal needs to be prepared in a hurry.

1-cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2-cup parmesan cheese

Pour the cheese sauce over the ingredients. Cover the ingredients with foil and bake at 350 degrees for thirty minutes.

A penne pasta salad is a topic of debate over whether to use fresh plum tomatoes, a favorite brand of canned plum ones, or the sweetness of the sun dried. Whatever the outcome of the discussion, any type of plum tomato will do.
