Roasted Tomatoes & Burrata Pappardelle

Jump to recipe...


This pasta looks and tastes like summer to me. It’s so simple yet elegant. The creamy burrata on top of the warm pasta makes the most luscious sauce. I can’t get enough of this!! 

I envision myself sitting on the Amalfi coast slurping up pasta like this. Since I can’t go to the Amalfi coast any time soon, I thought why not bring it to me. A little backstory… we were supposed to go to Italy for our 5 year anniversary last year but I got pregnant with Riaan so we couldn’t go. We planned on going this year for our 6 years, but covid ruined all of our lives. So here I am wishing I was eating this on the Amalfi coast while being kissed by the italian sun. We will hopefully be able to go very soon!!

Yesterday I posted garlicky roasted cherry tomatoes, today I’m sharing how to put them to good use. I hope you all enjoy this really easy summer dinner meal. Tag me @zheelicious and let me know how you liked it! 

Stay happy, stay hungry!


Prep time: 5 minutesCook time: 20 minutesTotal time: 25 minutesMakes: 5-6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1
  • 1 pack pappardelle 
  • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 
  • 2 thai chilies, chipped 
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1 tsp red crushed pepper

Directions:

  1. Cook the pappardelle according to the packaged direction. Reserve ½ cup of pasta water. (the water your pasta was cooking in).

  3. Add the roasted cherry tomatoes, salt, and pepper. 
  4. Add in your cooked pappardelle, add pasta water slowly while mixing the pasta as needed. (don’t dump all the water at once, else it will become really watery). 
  5. Top your pasta with burrata cheese, sprinkle salt & pepper and a little drizzle of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). Then add some torn basil leaves.
  6. Serve hot!

Notes:

  • I got my burrata from Trader Joe’s.
  • I also got my pappardelle from Trader Joe’s.
  • You can use any pasta you have on hand. 
  • Make sure to not overcook the pasta. 
  • The creamy inside of the burrata makes a luscious sauce. 
  • You can add more veggies to this if you like. 
  • If you can’t find burrata use fresh mozzarella cheese.
