You couldn't fault Warren Brooks for a lack of imagination. His references to an Italian-American employee, both written and spoken, included, "pasta brain," "linguine brain," "pepperoni head" and "Italian reject. " According to court testimony, he once told Michael Rego, a fellow employee of a local water-treatment company, "Keep your greasy Italian fingers off the corrosion test strips. " On another occasion, Brooks, who was Rego's supervisor, said, "The next person we hire won't be Italian because they're too stupid to deal with.

In a half-dozen Philadelphia high schools, kids can order a Domino's pizza delivered for lunch - as long as they don't order ground beef or pepperoni. It's not that the School District would object. And it's not that Domino's doesn't make it. It's that purchasing a pizza made with meat from an out-of- school pizzeria for sale in school is against U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations. Cheese pizza, yes. Pepperoni pizza, no. Well, almost no. According to Doug Leake, area supervisor for Domino's, regulations permit purchase of a pizza with one ounce of meat on it. But as Domino's sees it, "that's not real pizza, it's just a tease.

Ralph Principe wants to know what somebody's done with his 600 pounds of mozzarella cheese. The cheese is missing from Principe's pizza shop in Chester County, along with 60 pounds of pepperoni and a 300-pound meat slicer, police said yesterday. The Great Cheese Heist was Friday. "If I gave you 600 pounds of mozzarella cheese, what would you do with it?" asked Principe, who last month opened Marco's Pizza along Route 100 in Exton. "You wouldn't take it. You wouldn't know what to do with it. " The bewildered Principe, 69, thought he had seen it all at his last pizza shop, which he ran in the Olney section of Philadelphia for nine years.

Principal Vince Cardile thinks he's figured out how to get the students at Whitman Elementary School to read: Offer them free pizza and bring in local celebrities and accomplished athletes to show them there's more to life than sports, television and computer games. "With all the activities these kids have," Cardile said, "it's getting harder all the time to get kids to just sit down and read. We want to show them that learning and reading can be fun, too. " Cardile, his staff, Pizza Hut and a handful of sports figures from the Phillies, the Flyers and Rowan College helped kick off the Book-It Read-athon at Whitman last week.

Here's a hoagie recipe dedicated to Fast Eddie, our former mayor and future governor. Back in the summer of '99, the folks at Wawa introduced the Rendelli, a spicy sub they named after the guy they called the "number one hoagie fan in Philadelphia. " The Rendelli lasted only a few weeks on the menu board, but while it was around it sure was a hit. Like all of Wawa's sandwiches, this one was available in Junior, Shorti or Classic size. The recipe here makes a Shorti (six-inch sub)

Grains have been an essential part of cuisines for thousands of years, known for ease of preparation and nutritional value. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) - new to North Americans but cultivated in the South American Andes since 3,000 B.C. - was considered by the Incas "the mother grain. " It's high in protein, calcium, and iron, and has huge amounts of lysine, an amino acid not abundant in the vegetable kingdom. This versatile, easy-to-digest grain is also a relatively good source of phosphorus, Vitamin E, and several of the B vitamins.

Hold the anchovies - the nation's school-lunch program may be calling out for fresh pizza before long. The House Agriculture Committee has approved an amendment that would allow the U.S. Department of Agriculture to change regulations that have kept the fresh-pizza industry from delivering their meat-topped pizzas to school cafeterias. The change means that pizza purveyors such as Pizza Hut and Domino's could get a larger slice of the school-lunch program, which served up more than $432 million worth of frozen pizza last year.
