“This is from "Lidia's Italian Table: Italian American Favorites" by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich, author and host of the PBS television series of the same name. The shape of the pasta (orecchiette means "little ears" ) soaks up the flavorful sauce. This is a one-dish meal, very hearty and very satisfying. Serve with lots of crusty bread to soak up the sauce.”

Directions

  1. Bring the chicken stock to a boil.
  2. Cook the orecchiette in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente; drain well.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet, heat the oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderately high heat until golden. Add the broccoli rabe, crushed red pepper and salt; cover and steam for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the hot chicken stock, sausage and butter and cook over high heat until the sauce reduces slightly, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the orecchiette to the skillet and toss gently. Sprinkle half the Parmigiano on top and toss again. Serve immediately, sprinkled with the remaining cheese.
