Orecchiette With Sausage And Broccoli Recipe @pinch

Orecchiette pasta and sausage are the stars of this meal. There's also onion and garlic that give a good base of flavor. Instead of a heavy sauce, there's a thin cream and cheese sauce that's just enough to coat the pasta, sausage, and broccoli and add a nice flavor. This is a hearty pasta dinner that can quickly be whipped up. Orecchiette are little bowl-shaped pasta 'ears' that hold creamy sauces very well. For this, I used a chicken-garlic-spinach sausage. You can use any kind, really.
