Spaghetti with Broccoli Rabe, Sausage and Fresh Ricotta
An easy quick supper. I briefly blanched some broccoli rabe in the water I was boiling for the spaghetti (the big man's favorite noodle) -- while the pasta cooked I sautéed some crumbled Italian sausage with a few crushed fennel seeds and red pepper flakes. When the spaghetti was just al dente I tossed it in the skillet with the sausage, the broccoli rabe, a little of the pasta cooking liquid, some parmesan, and a good dollop of fresh ricotta cheese -- 20 minute after work week night dinner.
