Orecchiette with broccolini and mushrooms. 7/9/20

I first ate orecchiette with bitter greens in October, 2011 in the quaint town of Alberobello, Italy. Alberobello is the home of the Trulli, conical buildings which house everything, restaurants, hotels, churches, and especially gift shops. It is a great tourist attraction.

In one of these restaurant Trulli we stop for lunch. The essence of Italian food is local and uncomplicated. Orecchiette with bitter greens and olive oil is just such a dish. In our rendition we include mushrooms for more bulk and a difference in texture. The sauce is made with the pasta water and good olive oil is drizzled on top.
