Healthy and Hearty Pasta of the Month - Orecchiette with Sausage

Usually, healthy in the eating arena means a stick of carrot or celery.  Hearty describes a soup or stew!  But, when you can attest to losing weight while eating delicious pasta that is healthy and hearty,  I'll be the first one to "belly up" to the table.
