This is the best recipe! The problem is the Burrata. It is too expensive and doesn't keep well, so you spend too much money and don't use much of the product. The secret it to use Low-Fat Ricotta instead. Dollop the 2 tablespoons on each serving, just as is specified for the Burrata. The ricotta melts just a bit into the pasta and makes a wonderful creamy sauce. My husband has to have a spoon to get every last bit of it! Others have tried fresh mozzarella without good results. Ricotta works much better. Interestingly, there are several pasta recipes that call for ricotta just as I've described. I wonder that it wasn't suggested for this recipe. It works better here than for any of others. I now make this 3 of 4 times a month.
Well I liked this, but my teenager didn't. I've never used burrata cheese in a recipe before. I'd make it again. It went together quickly and was very filling.
Husband said "pasta was really good!" therefore it's definitely going in the "keep" pile.
Easy, quick & delicious, even meat-loving hubby liked it. I did use the diced tomatoes with Italian spices, as one reviewer suggested, as well as a bit more garlic. If you can find burrata, it's a wonderful addition to the dish & worth the $$ over regular mozzarella.
So good! I love burrata but haven't used it at home until now. Made with whole wheat pasta, and a touch more garlic and red pepper.
Great Meatless Monday Meal! Served with a cripy cheesey garlic bread and salad. Yum-ME!!
Great recipe! Delicious and easy. If I couldn't get my hands on the burrata (I found it at Trader Joe's) I think ricotta would be a good substitute.
Easy fresh quick
Excellent pasta recipe! I did make a few modifications: 1) more garlic (1 whole elephant clove; minced); 2) Used Italian Style Diced Tomatoes; 3) Added handful of chopped fresh basil; 4) Used "fresh" fettucine & 5) To thicken my sauce, I let the fresh tomatoes (used a variety, some roma, some heirloom & some grape; whatever was leftover from other recipes this week / available) simmer with the canned tomatoes for ~8 minutes, then I added 1 tbsp of cornstarch and simmered another 2-3 while stirring. Add the rest of the ingredients and top with sliced simply seasoned grilled chicken and you have an excellent meal. I had no problems with the flavor or the depth and I really think Burrata makes this dish extra special (they sell it at Meijer). Total time from start to finish was the prescribed 25 minutes (including chopping); just enough time for your chicken breasts to grill. We absolutely will be making again; simple, elegant, and delicious; enjoy!
My husband and I thought this was delicious and company-worthy. Couldn't find burrata, so used a combination of mozzarella and feta and it turned out delicious. Also used whole wheat pasta. It was simple and quick to prepare. Served it with a fruit salad to temper the heat a bit -- the dish is spicy!
Really tasty and I can't wait to have it again. The spinach and grape tomatoes really make it fresh and light. The burrata is like an unexpected treat. You can't get it everywhere, but Im lucky we have a store near us that has a large specialty cheese section.
Couldn't find burrata so maybe that was why I felt this was a bit bland (used tiny, fresh mozzarella balls instead). It tastes okay, but probably won't make again.
This had absolutely no depth of flavor. I will admit I skipped the burrata when I saw it would cost me $10 for that single ingredient. I used mozzarella instead.
Fantastic!!!!!! Very easy and tasty.
Tasty - will definitely make this again. Went lighter on the red pepper. Keep an eye on portion size (4 servings) I served this with a side salad.
This was really good and if I hadn't used my last can of tomatoes to make salsa, it would have been really quick (meaning trip to the store instead of pizza delivery). It fell just a tad flat and needs a little kick. The next time I will add some fresh basil or parsley at the end. I couldn't find burrata cheese so I used some crumbled, fresh goat cheese, which added a nice creaminess. My husband loved it!
This was wonderful. I used to love cooking light but lately the recipes haven't been up to par. I was so glad to find this recipe. It tasted like it came out of a restaurant. The whole family devoured it. This will become a staple.
Delicious! Also, so fast and easy to make.
It was just OK. We probably won't make again. While easy to prepare, it was pretty bland. Such is taste.
This was so tasty and quick and easy to make. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes and it was delicious.
This pasta is so easy and it was excellent. The crushed red pepper adds just the right amount of heat, which is not a lot. I beefed up the fresh tomatoes and spinach, otherwise followed it exactly, something I rarely do.
Awesome recipe! I love tomatoes, so I doubled the amount of cherry tomatoes. I also used generous cups of spinach. The Burrata cheese makes it really creamy. It is an excellent dish and not hard to make! Will definitely be serving this again!
This dish is excellent. I couldn't find burrata and so substituted fresh mozzarella. Since this is not as creamy as the burrata, I suggest adding this while the skillet is still on the heat to allow it to melt some. Really good!
