I came across this recipe from an interesting site called Not Eating Out in New York written by Cathy Erway, the blogger behind the site. I’ve only slightly modified the recipe and although it only serves 2, you can easily double or triple. It is rich enough served on its own for dinner with a crisp side salad and pair it with Dolcetto or Pinot Grigio. If you cannot find Orecchiette you can use another small shaped pasta like Penne or Elbow or even a spiral shaped noodle to capture the creamy béchamel cheese sauce. Rich Fontina is velvety smooth when it melts and adds a nutty character to the sauce. If unavailable, use another Alpine cheese like Gruyere or Raclette. Lastly, I like to play around with the greens, try kale, spinach, or broccoli rabe. Bon Appetito!
