Healthy Peas and Burrata Pasta Recipe
A luxurious Healthy Peas and Burrata Pasta recipe which pairs spaghetti with a decadent vegetable and burrata cheese topping.
Cut the yellow bell pepper in half, remove the white ribs and seeds, and cut each half into two pieces.
Place the peppers in the oven for 30 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit or until the skin is wrinkled and the peppers are slightly charred.
Once the peppers are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool. Peel off the skin.
Add the roasted pine nuts, yellow peppers, parmesan cheese, basil leaves, olive oil, salt and garlic to the food processor. Let it mix until it forms a paste.
Prepare the pasta
Pour water into a large pot over high heat. Add pasta and cook until al dente.
Reserve a cup of pasta water and drain the pasta in a colander.
As the pasta is cooking, place a large skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, pour oil and swirl to cover the bottom of the skillet.
Add onion and sauté for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds or until fragrant.
Add peas and a splash of water, and continue to cook for 5 minutes while occasionally stirring until the peas are cooked through.
Add lemon juice and zest, stir to combine, then add all the cooked pasta and toss gently for an even coating. Season with pepper and salt to taste. You can add pasta water if you think the pasta is dry.
Once the pasta is ready, top it with burrata cheese and some pesto, garnish with parsley, and serve immediately.
