    Epi Curious's Note:

    This is from "Lidia's Italian Table: Italian American Favorites" by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich, author and host of the PBS television series of the same name. The shape of the pasta (orecchiette means "little ears" ) soaks up the flavorful sauce. This is a one-dish meal, very hearty and very satisfying. Serve with lots of crusty bread to soak up the sauce.

      Despite my raised eyebrow regarding the directions, I cooked this anyway because I have wanted to try one of Lydia's recipes and I had the ingredients. It did not disappoint for me and my picky husband and 3-year-old; it had a wonderful flavor. Next time I will make just a few modifications based on my family's preference. I will add a can of cannellini beans pureeing half the can to make the sauce just a bit thicker and creamier while adding protein without the fat of dairy. This was quick and easy enough for a week night meal. I'm definitely adding this to my repertoire.

      Perfecto.... <br/>Had broccoli rabe and just bought a big chunk of parmisano reggiano and sweet sausage from my Italian market. <br/>Didn't have this in mind but... Glad I made it.<br/>I always start rabe with EVOO, garlic and red pepper flake so I had a good feeling before I started. <br/>I'll make this as my pasta course next time company is over.<br/>Thank you for sharing.
