Orecchiette with Sausage, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Leeks

DF

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe yet, because this is my absolute favorite pasta dish.  If you like sausage, you will love this dish.  It also tastes just a little bit better the next day as it’s had a chance to soak up a little more of the sauce.  You can also make this sauce in less time than it takes to cook the pasta.  What’s better than this? Nothing
