a MUST TRY recipe and a bike ride!

Not even sure what to call this recipe, but it is G-O-O-D!!
What you'll need:
*4 cans low-sodium chicken broth (making your own broth would be best!!)
*1 head broccoli rabe-chopped (found near the cabbage and lettuce)
*2 cans cannelini beans, drained
*1 onion, chopped
*OPTIONAL- 2% shredded mozzarella cheese
In large skillet, brown Italian sausage...once browned, remove from pot and set aside. In same pot, place chopped onion and allow to cook for 3 minutes, add chopped broccoli rabe AND broth, bring to simmer about 5 minutes. Add sausage back to pot along with 2 cans of rinsed, drained beans and THAT'S IT! You can add salt/pepper to taste and the best part...
when you serve this soup, add the mozzarella cheese-it'll melt and be SO yummy!
My entire family LOVED this soup, it was filling and tasted GREAT too
give it a try, I'd love to hear what you think!
Sorry for not having pics of the finished product on here,
I am SO bad about taking pictures while I'm trying out a new recipe :( Sorry!
So, after a delicious dinner-why not take a bike ride?!
that's what we did!
I try to change up my workouts as much as possible, because I don't want them to get boring or repetitive AND since I have two little ones needing me at all times, and NO gym membership, bike rides are a perfect solution. This bike trailer is what I have and it's GREAT!
Hope you try that recipe soon
and that you find some motivation OUTDOORS with your family too!

Hey Marissa! This looks yummy! I love to ride a bike. I need to get a new one for myself. I know that would be a lot of fun to do with my daughter. That is great that you change up your routine. I have to get back into working out like I used to. I was athletic all of my life. The pain in my knees and back make it hard now. I hope you have a good night!

This looks like a great healthy recipe for me to try! I can barely ride a bike, but I love the idea of going out in the evening after dinner for a little walk. It can be a great time to hang out as a family activity - we'll be doing it tomorrow evening!

Your recipe looks awesome! I'll have to try it! I can't wait to get back outside, here in Phoenix it will probably be another month before it starts to cool down. Once it does, bike rides will be on the list a couple of times a week. :)

sounds de-lish. hopefully I will get myself together enough to make it some time. This family is lucky if I cook twice a week ;)
