Tomato and Olive Penne, courtesy of Martha Stewart - we make this all summer long with fresh grape tomatoes from the garden. Kalamata olives are a staple in my fridge because they go well in so many things.
Chicken with Hearty Mushroom Sauce - You can do this with dried basil but it's just not the same. I don't use anchovies. The trick is to let the vegies simmer in the balsamic for the full minute -- the mushrooms really absorb the flavor nicely!
