This is the only decent photo I could get of them on May 1st

Reny and Fiona never stop moving and watching their relationship bloom this Spring has been one of our greatest joys

Fiona begs (screams) for Reny to take her down slides – the bigger the better in her opinion!

Reny is 2 and 11 months

Lemon Tuna Pasta with Broccoli Rabe

I love Facebook for the simple fact that my friends post recipes like this one that then can provide some much needed dinner inspiration!

Cook 12 oz spaghetti according to package directions

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil over medium-high heat

Add 8 cloves garlic, minced & 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Cook 1 minute

Add 1 bunch broccoli rabe (about 8-10 cups when largely chopped)

Saute the broccoli rabe over medium heat until it becomes tender (about 5 minutes)

Add 1/4 cup white wine & 1/2 cup pasta water

Allow liquids to steam broccoli rabe for 5-10 minutes

Add 2 cans albacore tuna, drained

Stir and warm through

Add the juice and zest of 2 large lemons

Season with freshly cracked black pepper

Add pasta directly from the pot (or drain and transfer immediately into saute pan)

Toss and serve with freshly grated parmesan


Ren & Fiona approved!
