I love this pasta dish! The richness of the sausage against the slightly bitter broccoli rabe is a flavor combo that can't be beat.  It's crucial that you hang on to some of that pasta cooking water to pull it all togehter.

Sweater weather

With the advent of sweater weather, parties are moving back inside.

A Soup Party just feels good in early fall. It forgoes all formality, is easy to pull off and encourages relaxed and comfortable mingling.  It’s a stop in, come when you can, we promise to feed you kind of party. If you’re looking for a reason to host one, think of a big kitchen soup party for almost any of your upcoming entertaining needs. Welcoming a new neighbor? Check! Your turn to host book club? Check! Been too long since you’ve invited your co-workers? Check! You get the idea. Conversely, if you’re thinking all of the reasons not to, sorry but I can’t help you. You don’t need to be a great cook or set a formal table- this is entertaining at its easiest!

Check out some of these favorite soup recipes for fall.
