Pasta, in all its various forms, I firmly believe, is the food of the gods. A big old bowl of spaghetti drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with a little salt and pepper is perfection itself. But I am forever trying to think of new ways to dress it up. Here's one of my recent recipes. I wish I could think of a more creative title for it, but I couldn't very easily call it "Pasta With Chicken, Mushrooms, Olives, Tomatoes, Pepperoni, Onions, Basil, and Parmesan." Too many ingredients, and no one is really the star of the dish.
