Baked Orecchiette with Pork Sugo

Bolstered with just four additional ingredients, an affordable cut of pork like the shoulder is transformed into a rich gravy or sauce, what's known in Italian cuisine, as a sugo. Here, Ethan Stowell prepares a pork sugo by braising pork shoulder until it almost falls apart, shredding it in a food processor and mixing it with a red-wine-and-tomato sauce; then he bakes it with orecchiette under a topping of Parmigiano cheese until crispy. The dish is an excellent alternative to the usual baked pasta, because it's not as heavy and cheesy but still delicious and satisfying.
