What Is Burrata Cheese
Burrata cheese is a soft, Italian cheese that is solid on the outside, but when you cut into it you discover a soft and creamy middle made of Stracciatella and cream. It has similarities to mozzarella but is softer and creamier.
Any leftover pasta can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days. We just suggest that you store the pasta separate from the cheese so that you can reheat the pasta without destroying that beautiful burrata!
How To Make A Late Summer Pasta + Burrata
You can begin by sautéing the onion and garlic in butter in a cast iron skillet.
Next, you can add the cherry tomatoes and move them around in the pan until they start to burst.
This process will take about 5-10 minutes.
You also have the option to roast some garlic for adding into the pasta, if you have the time we highly recommend it!
Now you can add your noodles to the pan and mix to cover with your tomato mixture. Add the burrata cheese on top and garnish with parmesan, basil, & oregano!
