Barilla pasta recipe: Orecchiette with prawns, broccoli and Sundried Tomato Pesto

What do you normally do on Christmas day? I normally return to the family home I grew up in for
Christmas and my mum would usually be the one cooking up a big Christmas lunch feast or starting the BBQ as my siblings, closest aunts, uncles and cousins gather around the table to catch-up on events that happen during the year. There is guilt sometimes though as despite the enjoyment factor my mother derives from cooking for the whole family on Christmas day, and with her usual hospitality of never insisting anyone bring anything for her, I do feel obliged to lend a hand by cooking a dish and taking it with me to ease the burden. If you want to cook a dish that's easy to do and delicious, then try this Barilla pasta dish. It's pretty quick to whip up. There probably be enough so that you have leftovers the following days so you can take a break from the kitchen, which probably is ideal as most shops are on holidays.
