Phil steals his recipes from Mickey?

"I stole this recipe," said Chef Phil Murray, Owner of Phil's on Front in Traverse City. "Only because Mickey has stolen a lot of my recipes... So we're even."

Phil is helping you create some of his favorite dishes in your own kitchen every week on UpNorthLive Tonight on ABC 29&8 at 6:30 p.m.

This week Phil is sharing Chef Mickey Cannon's recipe for Penne Pomodoro from Tuscan Bistro in Traverse City:


6 Oz. Cooked penne el dente

8 Oz. Chopped plum tomatoes

1 Tbl. Olive oil

2 Tbl. Fresh basil, chopped

1/2 Tsp. Chili flakes

Shredded parmesan for garnish

Salt and pepper to taste

"This is a one pan dish," said Phil. "It's very simple to make... It's great for your family and friends."

Cooking Directions:

Get a 10-inch saute pan hot. Add olive oil and garlic.

"Cook the garlic first," said Phil. "Then add your basil and some chili flakes... Brings out a lot of flavor."

Cook until golden brown. Add tomatoes, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add penne, season, and serve.

"Bon appetat, no, wait.... Bon appetite," said Phil.
