Pasta e Fagioli Link

I fell in love this weekend with a new recipe. Yep, you read right. If overdramatization is not your thing, this is not the site for you. I've been known to post about toothpaste, tennis shoes, and Dumdums. But back to my recipe story.

There is a blog that I frequent. And when I say frequent, I mean I check it daily. Me and Jeanette, yeah I call her Jeanette, we will either end up east coat-west coast besties or she will block me from her site and consider a restraining order. Time will tell. Her site, Life Rearranged is amazing. She is funny, creative and to top it all off, she does fund raising for various charities via guest-blogging by people who's lives have not gone as they expected. Sometimes when I'm reading I am also shouting at my screen "You took the words right out of my mouth!!" Cuz me and Jeanette, we think alike, but she just says it funnier.

Again, back to the point. A few weeks ago she posted a recipe that looked delish. I finally got around to trying it this weekend and it was just as she said. Totally delectable. I swapped a few things out, because I have the spiciness capacity of a two year old. But it was still awesome. So here is the link to her recipe Pasta e Fagioli if you want to do it the original way, or if you are like me here is alterations below.

*Instead of the Italian sausage she sliced up, I used 1 pound of ground, mild, Italian sausage.
*I used 2 big carrots
*Realized I was out of thyme
*Omitted the cayenne (aforementioned reasons)
*Use a BIG pot! I have been eating it {happily} for 3 days straight because it makes a ton!
Stay tuned for a recipe from me tomorrow. I'm getting back into my cooking groove, I've been making delicious stuffed shells, broccoli soup and its about time I post my recipe for Caramel Apple Cake don't you think? I'll re post this on my recipe blog Why did I make them separate? I don't even remember.
And if you would like to click over and peruse my family blog it is here.
