Italian Sausage and Pea Pasta SaladI 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.
