Recipe: Orecchiette with Turkey Sausage and Broccoli



Tiffany’s blog Savor Home is one of my favorites for delicious, easy recipes, pretty photographs, and a great mix of interior design and fashion. I loved her recipe for orecchiette with sausage and broccoli so much (the photos are amazing too!) that I asked her if I could share it with you all today. This recipe would be a very easy thing to make on a weeknight, and perfect to reheat for lunch the next day!

I found this orecchiette pasta in one of Giada’s cookbooks and I’ve seen her make several versions of it on her show. I have always been fascinated with the shape of that pasta, so I decided to try it out. Let’s just say my taste buds were ecstatic! This was incredibly delicious, slightly spicy (I used hot Italian sausage cause’ I love spicy food) and so easy to make. The juices from the sausage and the pasta water create this light and wonderful sauce that is SO good! It look me less than 25 minutes to make this from start to finish, so it would be a great weeknight dinner.

A little side note: The recipe called for broccoli rabe, which can be a little bitter. So I substituted baby broccoli, which is slightly sweet and much more tender than broccoli rabe and regular broccoli. If you have kids, they might favor it more as well.
