Orecchiette With Sausage And Broccoli :-Creating a supper that is enjoyed by all members of the family may be a challenging task. There is a child who is content to consume something that the other child is “not in the mood for.” However, every once in a while, I come across a recipe that everyone adores, such as this orecchiette pasta dish that I modified from Lidia’s Italian Table, which was written by Lidia Bastianich. Not only does it take no more than twenty-five minutes to prepare, but it is a dish that is enjoyed by every member of the family, vegetables and all.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Add salt to a large pot while the water is coming to a boil. Cook the orecchiette in accordance with the instructions that are printed on the package after you have added it.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, bring one tablespoon of olive oil to a temperature of medium-high as it is heating up.
  • During the cooking process, break up the sausage that you have added to the skillet with a spoon.

  • Combine the remaining four tablespoons of olive oil with the broccoli, salt, and red pepper flakes, and then add to the pan.
  • While stirring the broccoli frequently and scraping the bottom of the pan to remove the yummy brown bits, cook the broccoli for three to four minutes, or until it reaches a tender-crisp consistency.
  • Stir the butter in until it melts, then add it to the mixture.
  • In order to minimise the amount of liquid in the sauce and make it more concentrated, let it cook for a few minutes.

  • If you like, you can salt or pepper the dish more. You can either place them on a serving plate or in individual bowls, and then distribute the remaining grated cheese among the guests at the table.

  • It is recommended that you add additional water or broth to the meal as you are heating it up if it become a little dry while it was frozen. When you reheat it, you should make sure that you do not continue to cook it any longer.
