GARLICKY ORECCHIETTE WITH BROCCOLI RABE AND CARAMELIZED ONIONS

One of my absolute favorite dishes is orecchiette with brococli rabe and sausage. It’s texturally perfect, flavorfully interesting and, well, simply, quite delicious. Feeling not-so-sausagey¬†last night, I thought I’d play around with this Italian classic. I chose caramelized onions to get a meaty feel sans the animal, thus this dish is perfect for a vegetarian. I added a beautiful aged pecorino, but it’d be just as tasty — and vegan! — without the dairy. You choose. The possibilities are endless. Also, I didn’t include exact amounts in this recipe, as it is important to use your eyes and your tongue to get it tasting exactly how you like it!
