Welcome to Jeanie and Lulu’s Kitchen, a love letter to my two incredible grandmothers, both of whom I think about every time I’m in the kitchen.

Author's Notes

The roasted garlic can be stored in the refrigerator for weeks. To roast the garlic, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove the outer paper layers of a head of garlic and cut the top tip-off to reveal the cloves inside. Drizzle the top with little olive oil, then wrap it in foil and roast it in the oven for an hour.

It will take less time to cook homemade pasta than the boxed, but just taste it to see. The fresh pasta will take usually about 4-5 minutes versus 8-10 minutes for the boxed.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Take out a large, sturdy pot (like a dutch oven) and heat the Olive Oil (1 dash) over medium-high heat. Brown the Sweet Italian Sausage Link (1 lb) and crumble it up, for a few minutes.
step 2
Once browned, add in Sun-Dried Tomatoes (1 jar), Cremini Mushrooms (2 1/4 cups), and Garlic (6 cloves). Let them soften and get fragrant for a couple of minutes.
step 3
Pour in the Red Wine (3 Tbsp) and let it cook off for another 5 minutes or so. While it all cooks together, season it to taste with Salt (2 pinches) and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (2 pinches).

step 4
In the meantime, boil water in a big pot then generously salt it. Add the Orecchiette Pasta (1 lb) and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until tender.
step 5
When it has cooked for a few minutes, scoop out 3/4 cup of the pasta cooking water. Pour it into the pot of sausage and veggies, along with Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup). They will emulsify together to form a sauce.
step 6
Drain the pasta when it's tender and toss it into the pot with the sausage and mushroom mixture. Stir thoroughly.
