Ever since making this pasta on a whim one evening for dinner, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I mean, pasta with burrata, yes please. What's not to love about that? Add to that some deliciously browned and flavourful sausage, mushrooms and some bitter dandelion and you've got one epic pasta recipe. This quick weeknight dinner feels fancy with the burrata, but it's super simple to make. Although you can easily make this for company too. Either way, enjoy this pasta with burrata, sausage and mushrooms and savour every last bite.
Another reason to love this recipe is the short list of ingredients (you only need nine - including salt and pepper!), here's everything you'll need.
Making this burrata pasta with orecchiette is so easy and it comes together in about 30 minutes!
First, remove the burrata ball from the water and place on a plate to sit at room temperature while you prepare everything else. This will help the burrata to be creamier and softer, typically it should be served at room temperature.
Next, boil the pasta. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta al dente (according to package directions). Drain and set aside. Drizzle with a small splash of extra virgin olive oil to keep it from sticking together.
Meanwhile, in a large dutch oven over medium heat, add the sausage and cook, stirring often until browned and crispy and cooked through, about eight to nine minutes.
Remove the sausage once browned with a slotted spoon and set aside. If there is a lot of sausage that is sticking, deglaze with a splash of chicken broth or white wine. Add the mushrooms to the dutch oven and cook for about five to six minutes, until cooked through and softened. Then toss in the dandelion and reduce the heat to low. Sauté until just wilted (about one minute) and season with salt and pepper.
Add the sausage back into the pot along with the cooked pasta and the sauce. Mix together and remove from the heat.
Slice open the burrata and add in the creamy inside. Roughly tear the outer ball and add that in too.
Mix well to combine until the cheese melts.
If you want the cheese more melted, place in the oven at 350℉ for about five to seven minutes.
Top with fresh basil and season with salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!
Feel free to use any type of pasta in this recipe. I happen to love orecchiette, but literally any type will work in this recipe... except angel hair because it's gross (sorry, not sorry).
