See Lucinda Scala Quinn make orecchiette in our step-by-step photo tutorial. Any extra orecchiette can be frozen up to six weeks: First, freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer them to a resealable plastic bag and return them to the freezer. Boil directly from the freezer.
Love this pasta recipe! I have made the orecchiette, but I also used the recipe to make homemade spaghetti. It turned out fantastic! And so easy! Thanks Martha!
this pasta turned out wonderfully! the broccoli rabe and tomatoes were good as well but you don't need/or want
the breadcrumbs...totally unnecessary .....freshly grated cheese is better...also, if broccoli rabe is too bitter for you,
try broccolini or even fresh spinach!
