As far as pasta dishes go, this recipe for Pasta with Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rabe has got to be one of the easiest.
I love making this Sausage Strata recipe on holidays or for family brunches when there is always so much to get done and little time to do it.

I came up with this fast and easy flatbread pizza recipe with pesto, prosciutto and arugula to make for a quick weeknight dinner. It’s been a huge hit with my family and friends!

This is my version of one my nana’s recipes with chicken thighs. I made up the name Sicilian Harvest Chicken Thighs – I have no idea what she called it! I just call it delicious.
