Dinner Tonight: Orecchiette with broccolini and Italian Sausage

Simple and comforting, this was the perfect dinner for a rainy spring day! 

Serves 4 
1 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves minced garlic
Box orecchiette noodles
Good quality pasta sauce
1 bunch broccolini
3 minced shallots
1/2 cup red wine
3 links italian sausage 
shaved parmesan cheese 
Salt, pepper, basil

Simmer shallot in large sauce pan with garlic with olive oil until slightly brown. Add wine to deglaze followed by jarred pasta sauce and simmer on low for 5 minutes. While sauce simmers, steam broccolini and set aside. Chop up sausage links leaving out casings. Brown sausage in pan until half way done, then add to sauce pan and cook another 5-10 minutes on low. Boil pasta by package directions, saving 3 tbsp's pasta water for sauce. Once the noodles are cooked, add remaining pasta water to sauce as well as steamed broccolini. To plate, scoop noodles onto shallow bowl and pour sauce over. Garnish with shaved parmesan. If you enjoyed this recipe or have any comments please join as a follower and leave your comments!
