Orecchiette pasta with sausage, broccoli rabe, and roasted red peppers is my new go-to pasta! It’s such a great mix of spicy, sweet, and crunchy, and can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. A weeknight game changer, for sure!
Use any type of sausage you like best — spicy or sweet — but don’t swap out the broccoli rabe for another vegetable until you’ve tried it. Yes, it can be bitter, but by boiling it in salt water for a few minutes before adding it to the pan, you decrease the bitterness substantially. And it pairs so well with the sweet roasted red peppers!
Perhaps the best part of this recipe is that it’s just as delicious at room temperature as it is served hot from the pan, so no excuses not to prep, cook, and bring the most delicious pasta ever into work this week. You’re going to love this!
