with Button Mushrooms and Parmesan

Read more

Orecchiette literally means, “little ears.” A very fitting noodle for this dish, as this bowl of pasta is like music to ours. It’s bursting with peak-season produce like sweet, tender butternut squash and earthy mushrooms. Everything is tossed with fresh sage and garlicky herb butter, then sprinkled with Parmesan. Add some chili flakes, too, if you crave a kick. Listen closely, is that a dinner bell?
