Sharing another soup recipe today that’s rustic, simple, and exactly what I think most of you are craving right now: kale & sausage white bean soup. This hearty soup combines minimal ingredients and is so extremely comforting. It’s got loads of flavor from rich parmesan cheese and a little heat from crushed red pepper. Complete with a side of toasted bread for plenty of dipping.
I’m naming this my essential hearty pasta dish for fall and winter: orecchiette with sausage & butternut squash. It’s a rustic-style pasta that comes together in one pan and has lots of satisfying flavor in every bite.
Italian chicken sausages, creamy cheddar polenta with a kick, and a crisp radicchio pear slaw…the perfect combination for a quick and healthy meal.
If I’m going all out for breakfast, I usually choose to make something sweet…pancakes, waffles, crepes, etc. The rest of my family, most of them being boys, usually wants something they can pour hot sauce over to show up on the table.

You can be pretty sure to find some sort of protein and vegetable in a savory breakfast dish, so it’s a more nutritious alternative to the syrup-soaked stack of pancakes.
