Rainy Day Dinner

I love a dark, rainy day. And rainy days in the fall even more perfect- there's usually a college football game on tv...creating perfect background noise for an afternoon nap.
And the absolute best way to finish a day of being inside: a hearty, spicy bowl of pasta and a crisp salad.
The best scenario... you've already gone to the store to get all the ingredients, so you don't have to go out in the rain! 
Second best scenario... you've got the grocery store to yourself, because no one else wants to go out in the rain!
Tonight, I'll be sharing this menu with my husband and little one. 
Recipes are adapted from Tyler Florence's cookbook, "Dinner at My Place."

Menu: TF's Penne with Spicy Italian Sausage, Cream, Tomatoes, and Peas- Makes a veritable TON... so expect company... or leftovers. (Side note... this is a photo taken of leftovers... the dish has much more visual appeal directly after preparation!)
Bibb Lettuce with Tarragon Vinaigrette- Simple, tangy, sweet... delish!
