Ingredients

  • 12

    oz Orecchiette

  • 1/2

    lb green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1

    cup frozen peas

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 8

    oz full cooked Italian-style chicken sausage links, thinly sliced

  • 1/3

    cup pesto

  • 1/2

    cup (2 oz) grated Parmesan

Directions

Cook the pasta according to the package directions, adding the green beans and peas during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking water; drain the pasta and vegetables and return them to the pot. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the sausage, pesto, parmesan, and ½ cup of the reserved cooking water to the pasta and vegetables and toss to combine (add more cooking water if the pasta seems dry).
