        Pasta Salad
    12 dpe plum tomatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), quartered, or 1 pint
  cherry tomatoes, cut in halves
    2 cups (lighty packed) whole  fresh basil leaves
    2 ounces finely crumbled blue  cheese
    2 tablespoons olive or veg- etable oil
    2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    1 pound penne, mostaccioli or   other medium-shaped pasta, uncooked
    Toss the tomatoes in a bowl with the basil leaves, blue cheese, oil
  and vinegar.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate and
  let marinate for 45 minutes to 24 hours.

  rections; drain thoroughly. Transfer the pasta to a mixing bowl while
  still warm. Add the to- mato mixture and toss to mix. Let stand at
  room temperature about 15 minutes before serv- ing.

  leaves are longer than 1 inch, tear them in half crosswse be- fore
  adding to the tomato mix- ture.
    Option: Grill 8 to 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
  Cool 5 minutes after cooking, then cut into thin strips. Toss chicken
  while stil warm with the pasta salad. Serve im- mediately.
