Orecchiette With Sausage, Kale & Mushrooms

This is a really easy to make pasta meal that does not require a lot of steps to make and has relatively few ingredients.  It’s not lacking in flavour however.

The Orecchiette and pork sausage are each cooked separately and set aside.  The mushroom, shallot, kale and cream mixture is then cooked to create a tender blend before mixing through the pasta and sausage.  The end result is a hearty, very flavoursome & filling meal.

You can add other vegetables such as broccolini if you wish.  The choice is yours, however this combination works really well together.

The meal can be prepared and cooked in around 30 minutes, so a great choice when you are time poor.
