Orecchiette with Spicy Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rabe


      The old expression ‘while the cats away’ certainly applies to this particular dish.  Andrew was off in Texas visiting his family and I was here in New York playing away in the kitchen.  Now Andrew is not a picky eater but there are certain things that just don’t fly on his palate.  To name a few: Olives, Goat Cheese and Broccoli Rabe.  On the other hand, I am the consummate omnivore and there’s very little that I won’t eat.  But in the interests of domestic harmony, I avoid recipes with any ingredient Andrew doesn’t like.  I eat these favorites when we go out.  And I’m fortunate that we eat out often enough that I never feel deprived.  However, his absence lets me cook whatever comes to mind and, in this case, gives me a perfect opportunity to share one of my favorite dishes.
