Orecchiette is paired with sweet Italian sausage and hearty greens in a white wine garlic sauce in this flavorful and filling dish. Rapini, also known as broccoli rabe, is a delicate, slightly bitter green that is packed full of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins A and C. Broccoli rabe is not broccoli, despite its misleading name; it's actually related to turnips. If you can't find rapini, you can use another green such as spinach, but we love the flavor combination as this recipe is written. Garlic and white wine balance the bitterness of the greens, sweetening it for a delectable and incredibly cheap dinner. Lucy and Hugo developed this pasta dish after sampling something similar at an Italian restaurant. Now we enjoy this restaurant-quality meal at home for amazingly only a little over a dollar per serving. Plus, it's super quick and easy to prepare. Win-win!
