Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage



Inspiration?  This left-over broccoli rabe from a recent grilled cheese I made.



Time to dabble in the new book.  Foolproof.  This spoke to me.  Lets be honest- when does sausage not speak to me?




I am lucky enough to STILL have tomatoes left over from last summer- so I always sub those for canned- lets take a moment and revel in their beauty.



Tomatoes, garlic, sausage- so far so good.  Add some wine- getting better- tomato paste- we’re on our way…




Best part so far of this book- no blanching.  It’s true.  Why not cook pasta and rabe in one pot?  I can’t think of a good reason.




Mix together and we have a very satisfying meal.



I’ll make this again (actually I already have) my postings are behind.  I think this is a good use for lots of different greens.  Oh Ina,  I can tell that we are going to be friends.

    This was my first recipe I tried. Liked it but maybe it was the type of canned tomatoes I got…it tasted more like tomato sauce than a nice tomato pasta sauce.
