Orecchiette with Rappi & Meatless Sausage

A big thank you to Wegmans for this awesome recipe! Anytime I see multiple cloves of garlic in a recipe I know it's going to taste amazing. It calls for a meatless sausage but if you're feeling more like a carnivore add regular sausage to satisfy your senses.  This recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make and the family will enjoy it immensely!



  • One package or a chatty pasta cooked according to package directions
  • 12 ounces trimmed and chopped rappi
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  • One package meatless sausage, crumbled
  • Salt and pepper to taste
