Cook the orecchiette
While the water heats and the orecchiette cooks, prepare the vegetables and sausage.
Prep the vegetables
- Trim the ends from the broccoli rabe; cut the broccoli rabe into 2-inch lengths.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.
- Peel and thinly slice the shallots.
Cook the sausage
- Cut a small corner from the sausage packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
Cook the broccoli rabe; finish the pasta
Add the sausage, orecchiette, and either ¼ cup pasta cooking water plus ¼ cup white wine, or ½ cup pasta cooking water. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and the sausage is heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan.
While the pasta finishes cooking, begin preparing the salad.
Make the salad
- Trim the root end from the romaine; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Trim the ends from the radishes; thinly slice the radishes.
