Penne with Broccoli Rabe, Tomatoes and Cannellini Beans

I am a day late presenting my weekly recipe. I have been tending my perennial flower garden, painting walls and woodwork and trying to keep my puppy, Mozart, from getting covered with paint and chewing up tape, etc. I like to share, not only my recipe, but an occasional picture of Mozart or my flowers. This week's recipe is for a warm salad. It is very simple in preparation and very tasty. Great the next day, also!
