Chili Crisp Chicken Tacos with Spicy Mango Salsa.
This simple Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta with Melted Burrata is a great go-to dinner any time of year! Quick, easy, creamy (yum!) and so delicious! Pasta tossed together with a roasted red pepper tomato basil sauce with sun-dried tomatoes mixed in! Toss the hot creamy pasta up with burrata cheese, it’s so yummy! And everything is made all in one pot, keeping dishes to a minimum. Truly one of those all-in-one dinners that everyone at the table will love.
It’s that weird time of year between winter and spring. Some days you see spring shining through with sunshine and mild temps. Then others days it can be blustery and cold, leaving you craving a cozier dinner.
Lately, I’ve been so excited for fresh, bright, and even light spring recipes. But then I have those blustery days where I just feel like comforting pasta!
I made this last week, on a snowy day with grey skies, and it hit the spot perfectly! It’s a warm creamy pasta, but still feels nice for springtime with lots of bright, fresh herbs!
I ended up keeping this vegetarian and making the whole meal in one pot. It’s a relatively quick pasta dinner that’s just so yummy.
I made a roasted red pepper sauce that does require a blender. But other than that, this dish comes together without too much effort. Love that!
For the sauce, everything is blended up in a food processor. Roasted red peppers, toasted walnuts (any nut will work, or you can use seeds too, I love pumpkin seeds), tomato paste, garlic, fresh herbs, olive oil, a splash of vinegar, smoked paprika, and a touch of cayenne.
It’s such a delicious sauce. I’m loving mixing roasted red peppers and sun-dried tomatoes. Together they create such great flavor, very Italian.
Now onto the pasta. You need a big pot for this. Use one that you use to boil up a large batch of pasta in so you have lots of room to work. Be sure it’s big enough to allow the pasta room to expand as it soaks up water.
First, add the red pepper sauce and butter to the pot, then add the water. Let the mix come to a light boil. Now add in the dry pasta and let the pasta cook. Usually, around 10 minutes or so, until it’s just al dente.
The pasta will soak up the water we added to the red pepper sauce.
When the pasta is soft, I add freshly grated parmesan cheese, a mix of Italian herbs, and then sun-dried tomatoes, my favorite part!
The next step is fun. Pour the hot pasta over the burrata cheese and gently toss. The cheese will melt into the pasta making an already delicious meal, even better.
And just like I always do, finish up with fresh herbs. Simple, simple – just what we love!

I am making my own roasted red peppers for this recipe – how many peppers are equivalent to one jar?
I would use about 2 peppers:) Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love this recipe! xT
I made this differently. I added an entire (small) can of paste and left out the nuts (actually forgot to buy them). I then made the sauce and left it in the food processor. Meanwhile, I boiled the pasta, reserved two cups of pasta water and strained the pasta like I normally would. I then dumped the sauce into the same pot I had boiled the pasta in, added one cup of pasta water, and brought the sauce and water to a boil. Then, I added in the cooked pasta, added in more reserved pasta water as needed, and finally added the parmesan and sun dried tomatoes and basil. I was actually surprised that my entire family loved this! They ate every single bite and went back for seconds. Excellent recipe!
Amazing!! So glad to hear that this dish was enjoyed and thanks a bunch for making it! Thanks for sharing everything that worked well for you! xx
