Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler with Honey Butter Biscuits.
Gimme all the pasta please!!
I’m not sure if you guys have noticed or not, but Thursdays seem to be my “bring on the carbs” day. I somehow manage to post things like pizza and pasta on Thursdays. I don’t do it intentionally, but I’m starting to see it as a pattern. I’m pretty sure this is because I am anticipating Friday and the weekend, and I dunno by the time Thursday night rolls around I just needs carbs.
I mean, you guys get that, right?
I know you do.
So that’s why today we are making pasta.
But simple, FAST and delicious pasta. Wait, isn’t all pasta delicious? Kind of thinking that would be a YES.
This pasta though? It’s extra delicious for a number of reasons…
…reason one: butter. in my personal opinion almost no pasta is complete without at least a little butter. Yep, my mom taught me that. 🙂
…reason two: burrata. I mean, obviously.
…reason three: fresh spring peas, watercress and basil. All the greens for all the color and all the flavor!
…reason four: prosciutto. aka the ultimate accompaniment to almost all cheesy Italian dinners.
…reason five: it takes maybe twenty-five minutes TOPS from start to finish and you dirty only one pot, one bowl and maybe like a fork or something to stir everything up. Cause on Thursday no one wants to do dishes, and NO one has two hours to make dinner.
I get it guys. I get it.
This recipe is actually the fancy, veggied up version of this pasta that I made last year. That recipe has become a staple for me and all I did today was create a fresh spring version.
You can really use any veggies you love, and or have on hand. I think that artichokes, grilled asparagus, spinach and or kale would all be extra delicious in this pasta. The herbs are really important here as they add the bulk of the flavor….okay and all the parmesan and burrata too.
Cheese for protein guys, cheese for protein. ?
You can use any cut of pasta you love, but I think a long cut works best. Although, I seem to always favor long cut pasta over short cut when it comes to anything creamy and super cheesy like this. For me, short cut is reserved for dad’s pasta salads and mac and cheese.
SIDE NOTE: I’ve mentioned this before, but my family has this group text app going and sometimes some of the weirdest, most bizarre and most inappropriate things are said/shared. I will not share the inappropriate, because well they are just BAD and my family is insane, but I just got a slew of message on our family “group me” that all started with my oldest brother informing us that he has accidentally eaten part of a plastic fork while eating boneless wings. The string of texts that followed are both hilarious and totally Gerard family.
Also, I promise my brother is not that odd, he just eats too fast and gets way too excited about wings…okay, he might be a little weirder and odder than most. ?
Anyway, the point in this most random sidenote ever, is that these string of texts cracked a huge smile on my face and ended my night in a good way…cause I am currently tired, starving and totally in need of a shower. It’s super late at night as I type this and I really need some FOOD in me… like now, and I still need to go find Snape who is outside lovin life and probably will not come when I call him…UGH.
Side note over, now lets all have a KILLER Thursday and make this yummy Spring Pea and Burrata Pasta !!!

Yes please! 🙂 And tomorrow we will do dessert… because it’s Friday! 🙂
A perfect flavorful spring pasta dish! I made this for my family on Easter and we ate it with salmon, salad and homemade bread. Absolutely delicious! I love that this recipe is quick and easy, yet tastes so fancy. 🙂
Happy Friday!! I love to hear that this recipe was a hit, thanks so much for making it! xTieghan
i made this pasta dish yesterday for my Bookclub. Wow, this dish is not only gorgeous but
delicious! A complete hit with the ladies at bookclub. I made small modifications to suit.
This showstopper will be on my regular repertoire for dinner parties and the like.
I am so glad you all enjoyed this pasta Jennifer! Thank you so much!
Arugula would be delicious in here in place of the watercress
Yes, that would be delish!
I made this for dinner a couple days ago. Sooo yummy! I was kind of wary when I saw the peas but they were delicious mixed fresh into the pasta. The whole family loved it. Thanks Tieghan!
AHH! So awesome to hear! Love when my food pleases an entire family! (can be hard to do!! Especially in my family!!) Thanks Katie!
Made it, loved it. We called it “spring carbonara” – its absolutely spring in a dish. I used fresh peas (a lot of work but totally worth it in this dish!!), arugula micro-greens in place of the watercress (no watercress at the grocery today) and added a squeeze of lemon – so so soooooo good.
The hubs also adored it. Win-win! Will definitely make again.
And for the record – this dish jumped off the page from the photos AND ingredients/recipe. Good job. Seriously 🙂
Thank you soooo much Rose! Im so happy you guys enjoyed it! ((:
Wow, Tieghan. This one was so delicious, and an absolute winner with the entire family (2-year-old, 5-year-old, and both parents.)
Thank you sooooo much!!!
Also, in case anyone else wants to add the poached eggs as the piece de resistance but is as intimidated as I was….
Good luck with the book deadline. I love the simple recipes that are coming out because of your schedule, but I hope you’re holding up okay!
Thank you!! So happy to hear it was a hit!! Happy to hear your liking the simple recipes! (:
Made this for dinner last night. So delicious. Mine even looked almost as good as your gorgeous pictures. The only change I made was that I browned the butter. Awesome!
Thanks Sue!! Glad you loved it! Brown butter is a nice touch(:
This is absolutely the most beautiful pasta photo I have ever seen and among my favorites of all your work! Whatever food photography awards there are out there, you deserve them! I can’t wait to give your cookbook to all my foodie & photo friends 🙂
The recipe sounds great too 🙂 Somehow I’ve never heard of this egg sauce nor have I had peas in pasta. Thanks for expanding our horizons yet again.
Oh my gosh!! Thank you so much Amber! This the sweetest compliment?? I hope you get to try it and share with friends and family (:
I love your pasta dishes.
It’s one of my favorite foods.
Your brother is ok isn’t he??
Thank you!! He is okay… so far!
Spring peas with prosciutto is one of the best combos ever. I am loving this pasta!
I cannot wait to make this for my husband Tom! It’s going to be a hit!
I hope so!!??(:
I’m always a fan of pasta with peas in it!
