Orecchiette with lamb sausage and peas

Lately, there hasn't been many pasta dinners on the menu at our household. As much as I like to eat pasta and as much as I like to cook pasta, I've been trying to lead a lower-carb lifestyle over the last six months or so. However, I do believe in moderation so when the mood struck for a satisfying dinner on a Monday night, it was time to call on a weeknight warrior ingredient to save the day — pasta.

Cooking dinner during the week is the challenge that I, as well as countless others, face on a regular basis. It is this challenge that often pushes us toward the convenient, the processed, the take-out menu. I don't consider any of those things to be bad things. However, when it is all you rely on, then you're not doing yourself any favors. Everything has a time and a place. I'm a firm believer in moderation. When I have the opportunity to not have to face that challenge, I relish it. That's why I love Sunday dinners.
