          l 1/4 cup (60 ml) extra-virgin olive oil
          10 - 15 cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed
          1/2 cup (125 ml) chopped prosciutto or other salt-cured ham
          6 - 8 plum tomatoes, cored and chopped
          Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
          1 - 1 1/2 lbs. (450 - 675 g) cut pasta such as penne, ziti, or rigatoni, cooked according to the package directions
          1 cup (250 ml) coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
          Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for garnish

          Heat the oil in a pot large enough to hold the cooked pasta over moderate heat. Sauté the garlic and ham until the garlic is a deep golden brown. Add the tomatoes, salt, and pepper and simmer covered for 15 minutes. Drain the pasta when it is tender but firm (al dente) and add to the sauce. Add the basil and toss the pasta in the sauce, adding a little of the pasta water if the sauce is too dry. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Serves 4 to 6.

                PASTA NEOPOLITAN

                2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon
                6 to 8 cloves garlic, crushed, divided
                2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano, divided
                2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh basil, divided
                25 to 30 Roma tomatoes, diced
                2 pounds chicken breast, diced into 1/2 -inch pieces, seasoned with salt and pepper
                3 cups chicken broth
                2 (10-ounce) cans sliced black pitted olives, with juice
                2 pounds gemelli pasta

                Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet on medium heat and sauté half of the crushed garlic in the oil along with 1 teaspoon basil and 1 teaspoon oregano. Add the tomatoes, a cup at a time, to the skillet. Once all the tomatoes are in the pan, allow them to reduce by a fourth.

                In a separate pan, cook the chicken with remaining oil, crushed garlic, basil, and oregano. Cook until chicken is brown. Set the pan aside but do not discard any liquid that may be in the pan.

                Once the tomato broth mixture has reduced, add the chicken, chicken broth and juice from the olives to the pan and allow it to continue to cook. In total, the tomato mixture will cook for approximately 1 hour. In a large stockpot, bring water to a boil in order to cook the pasta. Add salt and the pasta and cook until al dente or approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the pasta in a colander and place in a large bowl. Add the finished tomato and chicken sauce to the pasta mix and serve. Note: Keep an eye on the reduction process, if it is reducing to quickly add a little water. Serve with fresh grated Romano and sliced black olives. Yield: 8 servings

                        Mozzarella Tuna Pasta Penne Bake

                        6oz(175g) Italian pasta penne
                        14oz(400g) can whole plum tomatoes, drained
                        2 tablespoons olive oil
                        2 cloves of garlic (I use 4-6 b'cos I love garlic)
                        5oz(150g) Italian mozzarella cheese, diced
                        4oz(125g) freshly grated parmesan cheese
                        5oz(150g) tuna
                        2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil (or 1-2 teaspoons of dried mixed herbs)
                        Salt and freshly ground black pepper

                        Cooking time: 20 mins

                        Serves 3-4 persons

                        1. Cook pasta in boiling water for 10 mins, until tender.
                        2. Meanwhile heat tomatoes and oil in pan, breaking down tomatoes gently with wooden spoon.
                        3. Add mozzarella, half parmesan, basil, tuna and seasoning to taste. Bring to the boil and remove from the heat.
                        4. Drain pasta and place in 1 1/2 pint (900ml) ovenproof dish.
                        5. Pour the sauce over the pasta and mix well. Sprinkle with remaining parmesan and place in a pre-heated oven 200 degrees C (400 degrees F) (Gas mark 6) for 10 mins until the cheese is golden.

                        Serve immediately.

                        I eat it with crusty bread sliced into pieces.

                        You can also use tinned chopped tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes.

                          Pepper, I found this recipe for you; it looks good, I guess you can substitute the spinach for callaloo? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

                          Flash Primavera

                          1 pound Mostaccioli, Ziti or other medium pasta shape, uncooked
                          1 head broccoli or cauliflower, cut into small florets
                          1 tbsp. cornstarch
                          1/4 cup water
                          3 cloves garlic, minced
                          1 15 1/2-oz. can low-sodium chicken broth
                          1 10-oz. package frozen mixed vegetables
                          1 10-oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
                          Salt and pepper to taste
                          1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

                          Prepare pasta according to package directions. Three minutes before the pasta is done, stir in the broccoli or cauliflower. Drain pasta and vegetables and transfer to a large bowl.

                          Looks good no?

                              Hope you didn't print recipe off before I added the garlic.
                              How could I forget the garlic when I LOVE it so much
                              I know it is regarded as antisocial BUT it keeps the vampires away
                              Good for circulation too
