Orecchiette with Spicy Sausage // This pasta dish boasts spicy sausage and bursting roasted tomatoes -- it's so good that I always have to double the recipe! #recipe #sausage #pasta

I have made this recipe a ridiculous amount of times because it is one that I cannot get enough of...nor can Nick or the kids. We had to double it after we demolished it the first time. The recipe in this post is not doubled. So I suggest if you are a family of four or more to double the recipe! Each time I've made it I have roasted the tomatoes and I personally think it's the best way to do it and I get no complaints when I roast the tomatoes. I love how easy it is to make - simple ingredients! You get the kick from the chorizo and the bursting sweetness of the tomatoes. It's heaven.

What you need:

  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 oz. orecchiette pasta
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, plus some
  • 8 oz. chorizo
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus some

Directions:

  1. Cook pasta in salted boiling water until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile, place tomatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and roast at 425* for 8 minutes or until they burst.
  3. Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Cook sausage in skillet, crumbling as it browns.
  4. Add onions and cook for 3 more minutes. Then add garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook for 1 more minute.
  5. Add tomatoes and broth and cook for 1 minute while stirring.
  6. Stir in cooked pasta and cheese and add a little pasta water to loosen it, if needed.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve topped with more cheese and green onions.
