Sun-dried Tomato Burrata Pasta

Savory, creamy, delicious, and wholesome! This pasta recipe for a flavorful dinner that everyone will love! It may just be my new favorite. 

I used a lot of spices, but the main hit of flavor comes from the sun-dried tomatoes. Of course, the burrata is the star of the dish with its buttery flavor and silky texture. All in all the flavors and textures come together for a winning combination.

WHAT IS BURRATA?

Burrata is a ball of fresh cow’s milk mozzarella. The outside is solid mozzarella. The inside is made of curds and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture. Some people describe the inside texture as ‘similar to full-fat ricotta cheese’. It’s super soft and very flavorful.

Although burrata is growing in popularity and is widely available now if you can’t find it, you can substitute fresh mozzarella or ricotta cheese in this recipe.

Sun-dried Tomato Burrata Pasta

  • Pasta. Any shape of pasta will work. You can also use gluten-free pasta.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes in oil. Drain and chop tomatoes, and reserve the oil.
  • Garlic, lemon, dried basil, red pepper flakes, salt, oregano, and black pepper.
  • Tomato paste. I used this brand in a tube. (You can also get it here.)
  • Parmesan. Fresh parmesan in a block, grate it yourself. The block parmesan has much more flavor.
  • Fresh parsley.
  • Burrata. I found burrata at Walmart and Kroger. If you can’t find it or don’t want to spend that much for cheese (it’s a little pricey) you can substitute ricotta or fresh mozzarella. 

You can add 1 pound of boneless, skinless cubed chicken breasts or thighs or Italian sausage to the recipe. I would after the spices, cook it through, then proceed with the recipe (step 5 below).
