One Pan Orecchiette Pasta
Orecchiette pasta is simmered with Italian sausage and arugula to prepare this quick-and-easy, one-pot meal.
Added sliced mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes. Very yummy!
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.
Wonderful method of cooking a pasta meal in one pot! I heavily modified this using a totally different meat, but followed the instructions in the video and they are so simple! The pasta tastes so different when you cook it by gradually stirring in the chicken broth. We loved it and it was easy to do!
Used penne pasta instead. Sautéed with garlic and onion for added flavor. I didn’t have low sodium chicken broth, so I used the regular one with half of the liquid and pasta still cooked through fine. A very good and easy recipe!
Very easy recipe with few ingredients! It also didn't take long to make. I didn't have spicy sausage on-hand, so I used 5 mild, sweet sausages instead. The result left me with a tasty, yet pretty salty dish. I recommend sticking with the original sausage mentioned in the recipe, or know what kind of sausage you may be using to avoid the saltiness at the end. Also, keep an eye on the pasta and broth to make sure the pasta is cooked properly. Mine ended up not being as tender as I would've liked, so next time, I will use more chicken broth in my mixture. Overall, I liked the recipe and would make it again. I thought it had a pretty rich flavor even though few ingredients were involved.
Thought it was good but with reservation. It was greasy. Too much olive oil or was the Trader Joe's sausage greasy. Why so little green? One-half cup is like adding parsley to a recipe. I used about 2 cups of spinach. Be careful of the "little ears" sticking together. Never had a problem when I boil them in water, but they stuck together for this recipe. Flavors were good. Never cooked pasta this way. Like risotto.
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.
