Summary: Those small little ears gives just the right amount of pasta in each bite and, bonus? You can pierce it with a fork or scoop it up with a spoon! I experimented with making a salad with some ingredients i had on hand and ended up with a great tangy recipe that i adore. When cooking the pasta, make sure to use plenty of olive oil or butter so that the Orecchiette doesn’t stick together when cooking.

Ingredients:

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp Italian dressing
1 tbsp lime juice
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp dried parsley

4 cups cooked orecchiette pasta
1 clamshell grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup red onion, chopped or sliced

1 small sprig fresh basil, slivered
2 large handfuls of arugula
1 cup shaved parmesan
