Category, , DifficultyBeginnerPrep Time2 minsCook Time3 minsTotal Time5 minsYields1 Serving

Orecchiette literally translates to ‘little ears’ from Italian due to their unique shape.  This lovely traditional pasta shape which hails from Apulia in Southern Italy is naturally vegan as it made solely of durum wheat flour and water.  Ours is no exception; we only use the finest grade golden Italian durum from a miller that we have been working with for over 10 years.

In this vegan offering, we add our beautifully rich but simple tomato sauce to our carefully crafted Orecchiette; the sauce is slow cooked with basil, onions, garlic and seasoning.  This warm combination provides a simple hearty meal for everyone to enjoy. Buon Appetitto!
