Orecchiette love

orecchietteWM

A very typical Pugliese pasta is orecchiette. Translated to “little ear” for its size and shape, this pasta is not only very simple to make on your own but can be combined with numerous sauces for a very delicious meal. My kids enjoy our annual trip to Puglia because they love helping out when we make these by hand. Yes, homemade. Not scary at all as all it takes is semolina flour and some room temperature water. Oh and a dull knife to assist your thumb in rolling them out.

A very simple tomato sauce with plenty of parmigiano or a light pesto sauce combines perfectly with these tender little guys.

Buon Appetito!
