What You’ll Need:
½ pound (1/2 package) penne pasta or rigatoni
2 ½ tablespoons olive oil

1 cup frozen peas
4 slices Genoa Italian salami
dash of cayenne pepper
salt and freshly grounded pepper
¼ cup each: freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese, chopped parsley

1. In a large sauce pan, bring water to a boil. Once it’s boiling, add the pasta and boil until the pasta is tender. Drain well in a colander or strainer and pour into a large bowl.
