Orecchiette with Sausage

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Orecchiette pasta in cherry tomato sauce with zucchini, kale, and sausage.

Short history: Orecchiette is a small rounded pasta that comes from the Apulia region in Southern Italy. Typically, the dough is rolled and cut into cubes, which are then pressed and dragged with a knife, which gives them their curl. There is a similar type of pasta in China which is called 猫耳朵, or “cat’s ears.” The roasted vegetables in this dish provide heart-healthy fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and the fennel helps regulate blood pressure.

Reheating instructions: Warm in a pan over medium heat.
