A note about serious food allergies

Orecchiette isn't just delicious, it's a pasta type that commands attention. Believed to originate in Apulia, a region of southern Italy, the name (which, admit it, is fun to say) comes from its shape - orecchiette translates as “little ear.” So, hear this: We treated this precious pasta right with white beans, briny Kalamata olives, the slight heat of chile flakes, buttery pine nuts, and a fresh finish of baby arugula. It quickly comes together to create a satisfying, rich meal that oozes rustic elegance.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Mince garlic. Use your fingers to remove leaves from the stem of one sprig of rosemary and finely chop the leaves. Save the other two sprigs for garnish. Drain and halve (or quarter, if preferred) the olives. Drain and rinse the white beans.

  2. 2

    Cook the Pasta

    Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Put a colander in the sink. Add the orecchiette and cook until al dente, about 10-13 minutes. Drain water and keep pasta warm until ready to serve.

  3. 3

    Prepare the Sauce

    In a medium pan over medium-high heat, sauté 1 tsp. olive oil and minced garlic until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Add pine nuts, chopped rosemary, red pepper flakes, and tomato paste to the pan. Sauté over medium heat for 2 minutes and add the beans, olives, and white cooking wine. Stir to combine and cook for 3-5 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Pasta

    Fold the orecchiette into the sauce, ensuring the pasta is completely coated. Fold in 2 Tbsp. of olive oil and arugula until slightly warmed and wilted.

  5. 5

    Plate the Dish

    Ladle a serving of the pasta onto a plate or in a shallow bowl. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
