One Pan Orecchiette Pasta

"Every year when it's time to go back to school I get inundated with requests from students to post recipes that are super-easy, cost pennies, and require a bare minimum of kitchen equipment. This delicious orecchiette pasta recipe only has a handful of ingredients, is very cheap to make, and most importantly: only uses one pan or pot for the entire procedure."

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion with a pinch of salt in hot oil until onion is soft and golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir sausage into onions; cook and stir until sausage is broken up and browned, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Pour 1 1/2 cups chicken broth into sausage mixture and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Add orecchiette pasta; cook and stir pasta in hot broth, adding remaining broth when liquid is absorbed, until pasta is cooked through and most of the broth is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir arugula into pasta-sausage mixture until arugula wilts. Ladle pasta into bowls and dust with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

Delicious and easy! Followed the recipe almost exactly to what is written....it is very forgiving with changes to proportions of ingredients. Perfect as is. I wouldn't stray too far from Orecchiette-like pasta to ensure even cooking. Times listed were spot on. Will make again for sure!

This recipe is great and beyond easy to make! I think next time I make it I may try pine nuts in it and possibly experiment with some fennel and anise spice. The leftovers were maybe better than the original meal. I did add a ton more arugula than suggested and used garlic. My boyfriend doesn't much care for veggies in his pasta and he ate a huge bowl!

This was super easy and fast to make. My fiancee said that it was a gourmet meal that would cost a lot at a restaurant. My two picky boys thought it was delicious and asked me to make it again the next day, which rarely happens. My new favorite Italian dish from my favorite chef on this site!

This was quick, easy, and very good. Instead of arugula I added spinach. I used 1lb Italian sausage and 1/2 lb spicy. My family said this is something they would like to have again. Thanks for sharing.
