Orecchiette, literally ‘little ears’ in Italian, are a perfect example of how amazing pasta can be. Using only flour and water, the little shell shapes have a firm bite, but a soft interior. Orecchiette are known and loved in their rugged home region of Puglia for their ability to scoop up smaller elements of sauce. In this rustic vegetarian dish, we serve the ‘little ears’ with a Mediterranean trinity of bell peppers, red onion and courgette, known respectively as “peperoni” “cipolla rossa” and “zucchine” in the native tongue. We gently roast these vegetables to tease out their naturally sweet flavour, before tossing among the fresh orecchiette. The result is a simple yet flavoursome dish, remniscent of summer in Italia.
A final scattering of ricotta salata from Sicily rounds out this piquant dish, a celebration of Mediterranean produce in all its glory.
