Spaghettini with blackened chillies, rapini, sausage. This is equally good made with broccoli and ham instead of rapini and sausage. Sometimes, if we're feeling extravagant, we garnish with grated parmesan.
This pasta with bacon, potatoes and provolone is based on Lidia Bastianich's recipe for Ditalini with Potatoes and Provola. Even though ditalini (thimbles) would have been fun, we decided to use the rotini we had on hand.
We're not the only ones who like green beans. This creature (we thought he was a cat when we got him) loves green beans and devours them every chance he gets!
