I have now made this recipe a few times, and each time, I like it more than the last. The first time, I didn’t buy orecchiette, just made it with spaghetti noodles – but it as even better the next time when I used orecchiette. The most recent time I made it, I used sweet italian turkey sausage and an extra 8 oz can of tomato sauce, and it was delicious. It isn’t quick – but that’s only because it has to simmer for 45 minutes. The actual prep time is minimal, and while it does not make a massively huge pot of sauce, we ate it twice last week and still put some leftover sauce into the freezer (which I’m already thinking about taking back out of the freezer, because I can’t stop thinking about the sauce). If you like italian sausage, you’ll love this sauce – trust me, make some. You won’t regret it!
