okay, this has probably been done a millions times, but.... Friday nights are usually take-out, or leftovers. Cook all week, and lately there's been a LOT of leftovers, but for some reason not tonight, slim pickings. DID have some broccoli rabe in the fridge (garlic and oil, hot pepper flakes) from earlier in the week. Grabbed some hot italian sausage from the freezer, threw 'em in a pan covered until they lost their color, then sliced them up and sauteed til cooked thru, deglazed with a little chianti. Tossed about 2 cups of the cooked greens in the pan to warm thru. Cooked up some cavatappi pasta, made up a quick aglio e olio, saved a bit of the pasta water. Warmed up some italian bread.Tossed everything together (except the bread ; ) and finished wit grated parm. I gotta say, we've paid at least $17 a plate out for this, maybe more because of the sausage, and it was oh boy um um good! I can't always get away with this because youngest off-spring will NOT eat the broccoli (he's getting what's left of Weds. nights linguine when he gets home) so this was a treat for us. Cheap and quick (sorta) and easy.... just had brag on myself a little, you guys understand...
