Penne Pasta with Tomatoes and Bleu Cheese
> from: <j...@dozierhome.com> 
> got a wheel of bleu cheese. now, i need a variety of ways to use it other 
> than bleu cheese salad dressing. jane 
 
i copied this from a local italian restaurant: 
 
 
4 - 5   roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped coarsely
8 - 10   brown crimini mushrooms, sliced
12   black pitted olives, sliced
2 clove  garlic, chopped
3 - 4 large  leaves sweet basil, sliced into thin strips
  parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  bleu cheese or cheese, crumbled
1/2 lb.  penne pasta
 
prepare all ingredients except the basil. don't chop the basil until the 
last minute or it will oxidize and turn black. cook the pasta. while pasta 
is cooking, saute the tomatoes and mushrooms in a little olive oil. use a 
large saute pan. when they've lost a bit of their moisture, add the olives 
and garlic. cook until just heated through. drain the pasta and add to the 
pan. remove from heat. chop the basil and add to pasta. add some grated 
parmesan and mix well, but quickly. drizzle some good quality extra virgin 
olive oil over pasta and transfer into 2 bowls. top with more grated 
parmesan and a bit of crumbled bleu cheese or gorgonzola. serve with a 
green salad and fresh focaccia.
