How to make

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add salt.
  2. Crush a clove of garlic with the side of a knife, place in the pot, and add olive oil. Saute over low heat until the garlic starts showing some color.
  3. Cut the tomatoes in half, add them to the pot, add the basil, cover with a lid and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes.
  4. When the tomatoes dump their liquid enough, take the garlic and basil out, stir with a blender, and put into a pan.
  5. Cut the burrata into bite-sized pieces. Grate the Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  6. Two minutes before the pasta is cooked, remove it from the pan, add the cheese and olive oil, toss with the sauce and cook for the remaining cooking time.
  7. Serve on a plate and drizzle the burrata, basil, and olive oil around on top.
