What's Cooking: Orecchiette with Turkey Sausage and Broccoli Rabe

The Giada cooking kick continues: This week, we followed her recipe for orecchiette with turkey sausage and broccoli rabe.

Since we already had plenty of penne in the pantry, we went with that instead of orecchiette. We also doubled the amount of garlic because, well, you can never have too much garlic. BTW, in her cookbook, she calls for spicy sausage; but the Food Network site's version of the recipe doesn't. I would definitely go with something spicy, as the dish really benefited from that extra flavor/heat.

The meal turned out really well. Easy to make, fantastic to eat. This one might have to go into our regular rotation.
