Penne Pasta with Fresh Herbs

This dish of fresh herbs is American cooking at its best. Dishes such as this one originated in southern Italy, but are at home in the U.S., where kitchen gardens are enjoying a popular revival. This bright pasta dish is utter simplicity to make.
    Penne Pasta with Fresh Herbs
  • 16 ounces Dreamfields? Penne Pasta
    (one box)
  • Salt
  • 4 peeled garlic cloves
  • 2 cups fresh herb leaves
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    (about 1/2 cup)
  • Freshly grated black pepper
Cook the pasta in a large quantity of rapidly boiling salted water until cooked al dente; do not overcook. While the water is boiling, place the garlic cloves and herb leaves on a cutting board, sprinkle with salt, and chop them with a knife until uniformly minced.

Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat to warm. Just before the pasta finishes cooking, dump the herb and garlic mixture into the skillet to warm through. Drain the pasta well, then remove the herbs from the heat and add the pasta and the grated cheese. Toss well, season to taste with pepper, and serve immediately.
