Orecchiette pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe is one of my FAVORITE Italian pasta dishes! The combination of the slightly bitter broccoli rabe combined with the garlic, red pepper flakes, Parmigiano Reggiano and sausage makes my taste buds do the happy dance!! If you’ve never had it, step out of your comfort zone and give it a try.

The filling requires no baking, it’s set with gelatin so if you wish to make this a no-bake pie, you can also use a ready-made graham cracker crust. This was so delicious I had to get it out of my house, as I tested it a few times to get it just right! If you have been following me, you probably know how much I love pie, it’s my favorite type of dessert and the only sweets I really crave. Some other pies I love are this Peanut Butter Pie and this Mixed Berry Pie.

To lighten these, I skip the Hollandaise sauce which shaves off hundreds of calories, since the egg yolks are perfectly silky on their own! This is delicious, you won’t miss it!
