I love making this dish because it is extremely simple. You can add other vegetables too like corn, carrots, etc. This recipe features just orecchiette, peas and sausage. You can make this into two different ways; tossed in olive oil or tossed with sun dried tomato pesto.
This dish is perfect as a snack, side dish, light lunch or dinner. What's great about this recipe is that you can eyeball everything and it'll turn out fine.

Prep Time: 15-20 minutes for pasta

  3. I opened the Italian sausage casing and cooked the sausage in a pan until browned. You can add any additional seasonings if you would like.
  4. Right before finish cooking the meat, you can throw in your green peas.
  5. You can scoop pasta into a bowl. Add your sausage and pea mixture, and then toss with olive oil.
