Difference between burrata and mozzarella?

What is the difference between a burrata and a mozzarella? Burrata is a type of Italian cheese of the filata cheese family. It is a kind of mozzarella in which the mozzarella is filled with cream.

To taste, the burrata is finer than the mozzarella and above all its consistency is much creamier. This makes her particularly good. You can eat it as it is, as a starter just with a drizzle of olive oil.

In this recipe, the burrata is so tender, that I did not cook it. I simply placed it on my pasta with still hot tomato sauce, so that the burrata keeps its freshness while adding a creamy touch to the pasta.

Preparation

Step 1: The pasta

Cook the rigatoni pasta in boiling water.

Tip: Reserve between 6 and 10 cl of pasta cooking water taken at the end of cooking. You will add this starchy water to your tomato sauce which allows the tomato sauce to stick better to the pasta.

Step 2: The tomato sauce

Chop the garlic. Wash the cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. In a sauté pan, sauté the garlic for 2 minutes in a little olive oil. Then add the peeled tomatoes.

You can add aromatic herbs such as thyme or rosemary according to your taste. Add salt and pepper. If your tomato sauce is too acidic, add a pinch of brown sugar. Cook for about 10-15 minutes over low heat.

Step 3: To finish

Shortly before serving, add the cherry tomatoes to your tomato sauce. Then add 6 to 10 cl of pasta cooking water. Mix well. Drain the pasta and pour it into the tomato sauce. Stir well.

On a plate, place a few leaves of baby spinach leaves. Add a portion of pasta. Place a portion of fresh burrata directly on the pasta. Finish with a dash of extra virgin olive oil.
