Sausage Orecchiette

Delicious, fast and easy.

That sums up this comforting Sausage Orecchiette. Spicy sausage, peppery basil, nutty Parmesan and a hint of lemon come together for one warming bowl of goodness.

A cold winter night needs some dreamy music.

Warehouse Eyes, being based in Minnesota, know something about freezing temps. And they know how to heat things up with a lush synth landscape. I love Jennie Lahlum’s ethereal vocals.

“Run until you’re free
If you look back
please don’t look at me”

Check out Warehouse Eyes on the band’s Website where you can learn of upcoming US tour dates. You can buy their music on Bandcamp.
