Orecchiette Barese Recipe

3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
100 g orecchiette pasta
2 cups fresh dry baby spinach
1 sausage
sea salt and 2 pinches of dried crushed red pepper flakes

Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned and juices form. Add garlic and red pepper flakes, and sauté until fragrant for about two minutes. Add the tender baby spinach.

Meanwhile, when the reserved cooking water is boiling, add the orecchiette pasta and cook until al dente, – tender but still firm to the bite – stirring occasionally for about eight minutes. When cooked to desired bite, drain.

Add sausage mixture and toss to coat with the juices. Add the pasta to the skillet. Stir in the Parmesan and serve immediately.

Makes 1 serving.
