This recipe was very simple. Almost all the ingredients are in the title. The original recipe from Everyday Italian by Giada, calls for broccoli rabe.

There really isn’t much need for a recipe with this one.

Cook about 12 ounces or enough for 4 servings of pasta.  In another pot bring a large amount of water to a boil, drop in about 2 cups of broccoli florets, boil for 1-2 minutes and drain.  In the mean time take about 1 pound of spicy sausage and brown it in a pan, toss in some garlic and red pepper flakes.  When everything is done, you mix it all together and add salt and pepper. Simple!

This dish was very simple and very yummy. It is adapted from The Art of Simple Food.

olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 large bunch of kale, washed and chopped

1/2 pound fennel sausage (loose)

1 onion, diced

salt, pepper

pinch of dried chile flakes

3/4 pound rotini (or any similar sized pasta)

In a large pot heat the olive oil over medium heat, add the garlic and saute until slightly browned, add the kale and a little bit of water, cover and cook until kale is tender, stirring occasionally.

In the meantime, in another heavy bottom pot, over medium heat saute the sausage, breaking apart, until browned. Remove from pot, and add onions. Saute until softened and caramelized (a bit). Season with the salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Add the cooked greens, and toss well.

Cook the pasta as you usually would. Drain and toss with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Plate the pasta and top with the greens and sausage. Add some parmesan if you want. Yum!

This was a simple, quick and yummy dinner. The meal is pretty self explanatory- no complicated recipes involved. This is the type of meal I tend to make when we need to eat quickly. This night my husband had to leave about an hour after I got home. So I needed to make dinner and he needed a chance to sit down and eat it, within an hour. Plenty of time.  This meal is actually 100% local too. Eggs and kale from Fickle Creek Farm, and the potatoes from Jones Farm and Redbud Farm.

Scrambled Eggs

4 eggs

salt, pepper

2 tsp water

Heat a skillet over medium heat, add some oil. Whisk the eggs, water, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl until eggs are pale yellow and slightly fluffy.  Add the eggs when the skillet is hot and constantly push around until solid-take off the heat just before they are done.

Roasted Potatoes

2 cups diced potatoes (any kind)

olive oil, salt, pepper

Heat the oven to 400 F. Toss potatoes with olive oil in roasting pan, season with salt and pepper, roast until tender- about 15 minutes.

Garlicky Kale

1 bunch kale, washed and ripped into bite size pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

pinch of hot pepper flakes

Heat oil in medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. When oil is hot add pepper flakes and garlic. When garlic starts to brown add kale and cover. Lower heat and simmer/saute about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. You can add some water or broth if it gets to dry.

Simple, quick and yummy.
