Sweet Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Pasta

Being quarantined at home during this coronavirus pandemic has really helped me to fall back in love with being in the kitchen. It’s not like I haven’t always loved cooking, I have, my whole life. While talking to my step mom the other day she was reminiscing about how much I used to love to bake and cook. With me being so busy in my skin and beauty studio, I wasn’t making much time for cooking anymore. My husband has obviously missed my cooking as he so candidly pointed out the other day how he was now spoiled. Well this pasta dish really spoke to the Italian side of him and it’s now one of our favs.
