This summer when I travel to Puglia I hope to learn to make orecchietti. They are shaped like little ears. The name is derived from the combination of orecchio (ear) and etto (small). Chances are, the next time you travel to Italy and take a cooking class, you will be given the opportunity to learn how to make the local pasta specialty. But, until then, here’s a step by step guide on how to make orecchietti from from Deborah Melle over at Italian Food Forever. Buon appetito!
