One Pan Orecchiette Pasta
Orecchiette pasta is simmered with Italian sausage and arugula to prepare this quick-and-easy, one-pot meal.
Nice recipe. I subbed elbow pasta, regular chicken broth, and handful of spinach. The elbow pasta was fine, but the broth made the dish salty (don't do this!). This spinach just disappeared, need to use a lot more. But it still came out good! Will make again,with adjustments.
We love this recipe and technique! Quick, easy, and good. My son has used this recipe to impress girlfriends.
I made this for dinner last night and I am a hero in the kitchen. I had about one and 3/4 cups of the Orecchiette pasta so I used it all and two spicy Italian sausages. I had some mushrooms which need to be used so I quartered them and added them while cooking the onions. I squeezed the juice from half a lemon after the sausage and pasta were added to the pan with the cup and a half of the broth. A few grindings of fresh pepper the rest of the broth (one whole box 900ml low sodium chicken broth) and finally the arugula. I probably used about 1 cup chopped. Then a few spoonfuls of very good parmesan cheese. This was a very easy and very delicious dinner. This is going into my "Tried and True" file. My additions/changes were insignificant to the recipe and did not alter the intended flavour.
I love this One pot dish! I doubled the meat , tripled the broth,and tripled the pasta. I used half hot and half mild sausage. Peas instead of arugula ... D Lish !
Excellent one pot quick dinner. I added garlic, italian seasoning, mushrooms and used spinach instead chopped arugula. We will definitely do this again!
I've made this a few times and it has turned out great every time. I buy spicy Italian sausage from our local butcher and it makes a huge difference vs grocery store Italian sausage. The first time I cooked this I couldn't find orecchiette pasta so I used gnocchi pasta (it wasn't traditional gnocchi) and that was good too! Cooking the pasta in chicken broth adds a really nice richness that I have now duplicated in other recipes. If I have it I stir in a 1/4 cup or less of heavy cream at the end and I like it that way also. If you don't have arugula use fresh basil leaves!! Leftovers are GREAT!! Thank you Chef John.
