Ingredients:

Burrata: An Italian cow milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer casing is solid but the inside is cream-like. If you can’t find burrata, you can use mozzarella but it will give a bit different of a texture and will take longer to melt.

Spaghettini: Slightly thicker than angel hair pasta, spaghettini is one of my favs. Traditionally used with seafood based sauces or oil-based sauces, but I love it in any spaghetti/pasta dish.

How to make burrata pasta:

  1. Add the unsalted butter, olive oil, shallots, garlic, diced tomatoes, capers, dried oregano, salt, cracked black pepper and red chili flakes to a medium-sized pot over medium high heat.
  2. Allow the ingredients to cook down and combine for 15 – 20 minutes.
  3. While the ingredients cook down, prepare the Spaghettini according to the instructions on the package in a large pot.
  4. Rinse and strain.
  5. Transfer back to the pot and allow to cool slightly. You can a small amount of olive oil to prevent sticking.
  6. After the 20 minutes, transfer the sauce ingredients to a blender.
  7. Blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  8. Pour the sauce into the large pot with the Spaghettini and mix to combine.
  9. Split apart the burrata cheese and add half of it to the pot, mix to melt the cheese.
  10. Serve each pasta serving with extra burrata, fresh basil, and red chili flakes!

    Very good and very quick. A couple of notes:
    1. If you’re using cherry tomatoes (like I did-that’s what I had) instead of field tomatoes that have more water, you may want to add some of the pasta water when blending the sauce to get some of the creaminess
    2. This is spicy, which I like, but you could easily do 1/4 teaspoon in the sauce and add as you like.
