Orecchiette with Chicken Sausage

Adapted from Real Simple


1 lb orecchiette pasta

12 oz Italian Style chicken sausage links, thinly sliced

3/4 lb green beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

1 c frozen peas

1 1/2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 c pesto

1/2 cup shredded parmesan


Cook the pasta according to the package, adding the green beans and peas for the last 3 minutes. Save 1 cup of the cooking water before straining the pasta and vegetables.

Heat the oil over medium heat in a skillet and cook the sausage until browned on both sides, about 8 minutes.

Add the sausages, Parmesan, pesto and enough of the cooking water that the pasta doesn’t seem dry.
