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.
