Easy Cheesy Baked Pasta
Here’s a pro-tip for a truly decadent pasta: stir in some cream cheese. Yes, cream cheese! Its meltable texture makes for the creamiest pasta sauce in this tasty comfort-food dish. You’ll combine orecchiette pasta shells—the name means “little ears” in Italian, after the cute cupped shapes—with crispy nuggets of sausage and pleasantly bitter broccoli rabe, then stir in marinara sauce, the cream cheese, and finally a shower of Parmesan to create a bubbling, cheesy crust. It’s a crowd-pleasing recipe that gets dinner on the table fast, while tasting delicious, too.
