Brown Butter Orecchiette

Brown Butter Orecchiettewith Spicy Sausage and Peas

This Encore Recipe uses just six ingredients, and one of them is butter. (You’re basically winning before you even take out a pot.) Small and round orecchiette pasta is tossed with spicy Italian sausage, fragrant sage, and bright green peas for a dish that’s simple, filling, and comforting. The aforementioned butter and a little Parmesan cheese give the dish a rich, creamy texture you’ll want to experience again and again.
