In my house, whenever we don’t know what to make for dinner, we opt for a pasta dish. We keep a pretty well-stocked pantry, so this is often the simplest thing. Making the same pasta dish all the time though can become pretty boring, so we like to try different varieties.
Here, we have some orecchiette with peas and onions. This is a super light pasta cooked with parmesan and some lightly sautéed peas and onions. If you have trouble finding orecchiette at your local grocery store, this would work equally well with shells or maybe even spaghetti.
Serve this next to a leafy green salad or with some other deliciously prepared vegetables. Perfect dish for a Meatless Monday! (more…)
