Fall back and punt

Dinner:  August 29, 2007

When I wrote up our meal plan for the week, our original thought for Wednesday evening was that Mike would come home early and grill pizzas. As it turned out, he did come home early, but the heavy overtime he has been working caught up with him a bit and we decided to hold off on the pizza-making until this coming weekend. I’ve been devoting a lot of time and energy to testing recipes for our upcoming cocktail party, so I decided to go with an old standby for dinner – Orecchiette with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe. This is this dish’s third appearance on this site, but when something is this easy to make and reliably good, it’s worth repeating.

  1. Christ on a bike, as my younger daughter says, Jennifer. It’s 9:41 in the morning and you have me suddenly famished. And since your blog is about what you had for dinner the previous night, you’re totally allowed to repeat. Beautiful photo, by the way.

    I finally made a version of this. I used what i had on hand so i ended up with green garlic, green onions and Tatsoi instead of the broccoli rabe. I also inadvertantly bought chicken sausage that was already cooked so I sauteed it up in pieces with the casing. Still this was a quick and delicious dinner! I’m having the leftovers for lunch.
    thanks for your inspiration Jen!
