      Title: Penne alla malefemmina*
 Categories: Pasta, Vegetables, Favorite
      Yield: 4 Servings
    1/4 c  Olive oil; extra virgin
     20    Kalamata olives; pitted and
      1 tb Capers plus 1/2 ts. marinade
      5    Garlic cloves, chopped
      1 c  Tomatoes, coarsely chopped
    1/4 c  Basil leaves, some whole,
           -some chopped in half
           Salt to taste
        pn Red pepper flakes
    3/4 lb Macaroni pasta like penne
  *Pasta with Marinated Tomatoes, Capers, Olives, Garlic, Chilies, and
  Herbs. Author's note:  "This pasta dish would not be the same without
  the piquancy it picks up from the capers, and from its Italian name.
  The dish loosely translates as 'bad woman pasta,' as several other
  lusty tomato and garlic and herb pasta dishes do.  Legend has it that
  these dishes are so named because they are very aromatic and lure
  customers in when other charms fail. Another explanation is that the
  dishes are so quick they can be prepared between customers."
  Combine olive oil with olives, capers, garlic, tomatoes, basil, salt,
  and pepper flakes.  Let sit and marinate for half hour if possible.
  Cook penne in rapidly boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and
  toss with sauce. Serve immediately, or let cool and enjoy as a salad.
