orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe

One of our all-time favorite dishes in our apartment is the traditional Italian dish of orecchiette pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe. Jude made a gorgeous batch of it for dinner tonight. In this picture, all the leafy parts of the rabe are underneath, but you get the idea. So good.

Jude got the broccoli rabe (first of the season) from Migliorelli Farm at the Union Square farmer's market.

And homemade sausage from our neighborhood butcher at The Greene Grape.

After cooking the sausage, he de-glazed the pan with some wine to make a nice sauce for the pasta.

And Ruby got the last of the fall's harvest (here some sweet potato puree) that Jude had prepared and frozen for her to last through the winter just in time for spring! So far, this kid has eaten all local, organic veggies with the exceptions of bananas and avocado.
