Simple Buttery Spring Pea and Burrata Pasta with Prosciutto | @hbharvest

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 !!!

  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil chopped
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 tablespoons butter cubed or melted (I use salted butter)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen peas thawed
  • 12 slices fresh prosciutto roughly torn
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese torn
  • 1 bunch fresh watercress
  • 4 poaches eggs optional

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Boil the pasta until al dente.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the eggs together in a bowl. Add the parsley, basil, parmesan and a pinch of both salt and pepper, whisk well. If desired add a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.

Continue to toss the pasta for 2-3 minutes or until the eggs have cooked and formed a creamy sauce. Add the butter + peas and toss once more. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the prosciutto and burrata. Divide the pasta among plates or bowls and top with watercress and poached eggs. Drizzle the burrata lightly with olive oil, salt + pepper. Enjoy immediately.

  1. Yum! This looks so fresh and inviting and I love how you’ve styled the pasta 🙂 I adore pasta and probably eat far too much of it but it is sooo goood, especially when there’s lots of cheese….

  2. Love the spring flavors in this pasta… and of course, burrata makes everything amazing! Love it Tieghan!

  3. Pretty much every day for me is Peanut Butter and Sweet Potato Day. I mean, don’t judge, right? 😉 I am always so awestruck by how you plate the food and edit your photos! So gorgeous and high quality–really captures the essence of your culinary artwork!


    also, super impressed with how you styled this bucatini! I’ve photographed with it for a few clients and it’s SO hard to get to look nicely, I’m assuming you used a giant fork to get those even twirls – nicely done chica.

  5. Thursday/Carb Day. I think that should be a thing, and now I’m going to celebrate it with a big bowl of this pasta. I love how spring-y and fresh it is!
    Oh, and I totally get you with the family group texts, I come from a large family too, and the group texts with my siblings just make me lose it sometimes (trying to stifle laughs and accidentally snorting at my desk at work… that’s happened more than once)! 🙂

  6. Ok you know my routine have to sub for the cheese.. ( 3 H drive to the store).
    Don’t have feta on hand either.. Any suggestions. ?
    Looks divine.. Peas Pasta..awwwww spring..and guess what SNOW in the forecast.. so a comfort bowl of goodness is in order. thanks.

  7. My family has a whatsapp group too, and it’s priceless. We’re so lucky to have such an instant way to keep up with one another – even if it is just an update on eating a prong from a plastic fork!

    Love the look of that pasta, I shall have to track down some burrata asap.

    1. It is pretty convenient!! Just so everyones clear… i got an update, it was a bit more than a prong… more like half the for lol!

  8. One of our favorite easy pastas is with peas and feta but burratta might just beat feta in this case! This looks divine!

  9. I read a stat that said people are in their very best mood on Thursdays, so if you have to ask a favor, ask then! Maybe this is because they know pasta is coming? Anyhow, I love the springiness of this dish. So fresh and delightful.

  10. I don’t eat pasta ( I know, so weird) and always so indifferent to the pictures… but this one is just calling to me, it looks sooo good! Maybe it’s a Thursday thing, I agree 🙂 I think I will have to break the tradition..
    You are so in love with burrata. I need to find it in our grocery store, have not tried it.. but the picture looks like it’s going to be really good with goat cheese too

  11. the family was in our mini van , which i like to call the aircraft carrier, it’s huge. my kids (3) were in the back ,strapped in, having lollipops. we get to our destination & i’m collecting lolli pop sticks…. got two. get to the last kid, where is the stick…
    “I ate the lolli pop”
    me- where is the stick?
    puzzled look he gives me….” i ate it, it’s gone”
    thank goodness it was the paper type of lolli pop stick.
    could not find trace of it anywhere, so i think he ate it!
    …its not just your family. lol.

  12. That’s hilarious about the plastic fork (even though I hope he’s okay), and I am SO all for this pasta! You really can crank out the best easy meals Tieghan! Btw, it sounds like your working too hard, Girl! Make sure to take a few minutes to take care of yourself and just breathe. Thanks for all the time you put into sharing such amazingness!

    1. I think he is okay! Thanks for the kind words!! I might work too much sometimes!! but I complain sometimes but I really enjoy it (:
