Sausage Orecchiette Pasta
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
After reading the reviews below I did a couple tweaks to the recipes to hopefully give it extra "oomph". Instead of the Italian sausage, I used leftover feta-spinach chicken sausage. I think I cooked the wine too long because I didn't notice a wine flavor at all. Instead of waiting for the broccoli to cook in the pan, I steamed it beforehand. The diced tomatoes I used had roasted garlic and onion in them. I also used feta in place of the parmesan. After those tweaks, this was a really good, fresh dish. The bones for a delicious recipe are there, you just need to fine-tune it a bit to suit your taste.
My family did not really care much for this dish! Regular Italian sausage should've been used for more flavor, and some herbs. The recipe called for way too much pasta.
I agree with the lady that said it lacked spice. It was flavorless. IF I make it again (doubtful), I'd use pork sausage and canned tomatoes with oregano and basil. I have a ton of left overs that I will either have to doctor up or throw out.
Everyone in my family enjoys this recipe. I double the recipe for our family and keep the leftovers in the fridge for my teenagers to heat up as a snack since they are always hunting for something good to eat. It's an easy and tasty recipe.
This has become a regular dinner at my house. My husband and I love the flavor and how easy it is to make. The only thing we do differently is we usually use sliced sausage instead of ground.
This was quick, easy, and flavorful! I did add a little kosher salt and pepper, but it really didn't need it. I also served this with rice instead of pasta. I will definitely make this again!
This was so quick and easy. The freshly grated parm cheese gives it a good flavor and I love that there is no added salt to this dish.
