Roasted Tomato Pasta With Creamy Burrata Recipe

Roasted Tomato Pasta With Creamy Burrata Recipe

I love a good spaghetti recipe. But this quick and easy pasta recipe requires almost no cooking at all! It is clean, simple, healthy yet packs incredibly with bursts of flavour thanks to the roasted tomato! I feel like this is the perfect dinner solution for the busy-mom (dad, parent, working individual) who still wants a tasty homecooked meal. The recipe is versatile. And the only cooking required is roasting your tomatoes and cooking the pasta.

Fresh burrata is my favourite!!! It is soft, gooey and melts easily to warm spaghetti. Roasting tomatoes give you a sweet robust pop of flavour. If you want a complex tomato sauce profile, you must add some cherry tomatoes! Roasting cherry tomatoes just give your tomato sauce that oomph that cannot be substituted with canned tomato sauce!

When I made this for dinner the other day before picking up Emily from daycare,  I ran out of cherry tomatoes so that’s why you can’t see any in the photos. But TRUST ME, roasted cherry tomatoes is life! I learnt this a few years ago from David Lebovitz.

Anyways, adding the tomatoes together with the fresh burrata cheese and freshly picked basil from the garden makes the perfect flavour combination!

 

Place your cherry tomatoes and Brandywine heirloom tomatoes on a tin foil or parchment lined baking tray. Season generously with olive oil and rub them with fresh garlic cloves, salt and pepper. I prefer using coarse salt over table salt. I find it helps breaks down the tomatoes skin faster. Roast them in the oven at 425F for 40 to 45 minutes. If you have an outdoor grill, all the better. (I’m jealous!) The important thing to note is to use a baking tray big enough so the tomatoes are not overcrowded. You want room between them so the moisture escapes. You want them to be wrinkly and burst so they can release their juices. This way, it concentrates the tomato flavour. Remember, to keep all the juice and liquids for your pasta later! Don’t worry about overcooking them. It’s kind of hard to, but do check on them every once in a while to monitor the progress.

 

Pro-tip: Freeze roasted tomatoes and liquids to use for a quick pasta sauce later.

 

 

 

 

One thing about this recipe I mentioned earlier is how versatile it is. If you don’t have spaghetti, use pappardelle, macaroni, or heck even your kid’s animal pasta (mine LOVES these)! The only cooking you need is to cook your desired pasta to al dente. Once your pasta is cooked, drain and transfer to a large bowl. Remember to save the pasta water for later if your pasta needs more moisture.

Now you can sit on the patio, drinking glasses of chilled wine, while the tomatoes “cook” in the oven for 40 mins. You can probably catch up on an episode on Netflix too while you wait!

Roasted Tomato Pasta With Creamy Burrata Recipe

  • Author: Nancy
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 40
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 2-4 people 1x
  • Category: Entree
  • Method: Bake and Boil
  • Cuisine: Italian

Description

This quick and easy pasta recipe requires almost no cooking at all! It is clean, simple, healthy yet packs incredibly with bursts of flavour thanks to the roasted tomatoes! I feel like this is the perfect dinner solution for the busy-mom (dad, parent, working individual) who still wants a tasty homecooked meal.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 46 Brandywine heirloom tomatoes
  • 24 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 200 grams of spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 ball burrata
  • 1/4 cup pasta water (if your pasta needs more moisture)
  • bunch of basil leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a drizzle of chilli oil to taste (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place cherry tomatoes on tinfoil or parchment paper in a baking tray.
  3. Season generously with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Place in the oven and cook for approximate 40-45 minutes or until tomatoes are wrinkly and bursts releasing liquids.
  5. Remove from the oven.
  6. About 15 mins before tomatoes finish roasting, cook your pasta.
  7. Cooking your pasta: boil water, add salt and cook your spaghetti pasta to al dente. The pasta will take around 10 minutes to cook through once the water reaches a boil.
  8. Drain and transfer cooked pasta to a large bowl. Reserve about 1/2 cup pasta water for later.
  9. Add roasted tomatoes with the liquids released.
  10. Divide and add burrata, parmesan cheese, basil, a drizzle of olive oil. Because you have already added salt and pepper to your roasted tomatoes, so do not need to add more salt unless you want to.
  11. If your pasta is too dry, add pasta water a little at a time.
  12. Give it a good stir and mix well!
  13. Transfer and plate pasta to individual serving plates. Add more parmesan, basil and olive oil for finishing. At the stage, I also like to add a drizzle of chilli oil.

Notes

  • I like roasting extra tomatoes so I can get enough tomato juices and not use pasta water.
  • Mixing the burrata in your freshly cooked pasta will melt it slightly. You will have some creamy, gooey, melted burrata (yummy!). Give it a good stir and mix well! Reserve some extra cheese for topping.
  • You can use whatever pasta you want: Spaghettipappardelle, linguine, fettuccine, etc.
  • Macaroni is good also because it can hold the sauce. Good for kids!

Just-Add-Water Miso, Sweet Potato, and Soba Ramen Recipe

Just-Add-Water Miso, Sweet Potato, and Soba Ramen Recipe

MODERN LUNCH COOKBOOK REVIEW ALLISON DAY NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG CANADA

This Just-Add-Water Miso, Sweet Potato, and Soba Ramen Recipe come from Allison Day and new newly launched Modern Lunch cookbook. The natural sweetness and creaminess of sweet potato helps to create a ramen broth that’s both addictive and nourishing. Soba noodles, made from buckwheat flour (check the label for 100 percent buckwheat flour to make sure they’re gluten-free, if that’s a priority), offer a nutty quality to the dish while mushrooms and the requisite soft-boiled jammy egg give a familiar umami tang. Greens are required here, for me at least, making this healthy meal-in-a-jar (or container or bowl) look and feel three-dimensional. The just-add-water method means no accidental spills and a lighter lunch to take in your bag. This recipe actually reminds alot about the vegetarian ramen bowl from Harvest – a tiny grocer/restaurant in Vancouver’s Chinatown.

The natural sweetness and creaminess of sweet potato helps to create a ramen broth that’s both addictive and nourishing.


Scale

Ingredients

RAMEN BROTH CONCENTRATE

  • 1 small or ½ large (7 oz) sweet potato, peeled and chunked
  • 1 cup water, plus more for steaming sweet potato
  • 2 Tbsp organic vegetable or chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 Tbsp white miso paste 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil Sriracha
  • 1 small or ½ large (7 oz) sweet potato, peeled and chunked
  • 1 cup water, plus more for steaming sweet potato
  • 2 Tbsp organic vegetable or chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 Tbsp white miso paste 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp toasted sesame oil Sriracha

VEGETABLES, EGGS, AND SOBA NOODLES

  • 4 portobello mushrooms, diced
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp gluten-free tamari
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 bundles (6½ oz) soba noodles (buckwheat noodles)
  • 2 cups steamed greens (broccoli, broccoli rabe, kale, etc.) or packed raw spinach
  • Black sesame seeds (optional)
  • Minced fresh red Thai chili (optional)
  • 4 cups (1 cup per serving) just-boiled water from the kettle, for serving

Instructions

  1. For the broth concentrate, steam the sweet potato until tender, about 10 minutes. Add to a blender or food processor along with 1 cup water, bouillon powder, miso paste, rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, and Sriracha to taste, and then blend until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a jar and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  2. For the vegetables, eggs, and soba noodles, preheat the oven to 425°F and bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Toss the mushrooms with the sesame oil and tamari. Place the mushrooms on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, until shrunken and deep brown. Set aside.
  4. Carefully place the eggs in boiling water and cook for 6 minutes. Fill a medium bowl with cold water. Once the 6 minutes are up, use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the pot and place them in the bowl of cold water to help loosen the shell, keeping the boiling water on the stove for the noodles. Gently peel the eggs, being careful not to break the white or the yolk will run out (they’re not as sturdy as hard-boiled eggs), and set aside. Then, cook the noodles in the reserved boiling water according to package directions, until tender. Drain the noodles, rinse with cold water, drain again, and set aside.
  5. To assemble, for each serving, add ½ cup of broth concentrate to a large jar or airtight container or build at home in a bowl. Top the broth with a portion each of noodles, mushrooms, steamed greens or spinach, a peeled whole egg, and sesame seeds and chili to taste. Seal and store refrigerated.
  6. When you’re ready for lunch, for each serving, pour 1 cup (enough to cover) of boiling water over top, seal, and let stand for 3 minutes to reheat fully. Open the lid, give the soup a gentle stir, slice the egg in half with your spoon, and then eat.

Notes

GO PLANT-BASED To make this meal vegan, use vegetable bouillon and replace the egg with cubed smoked tofu.
