  • Cavatelli pasta - ¾ lb (320 g)
  • Burrata cheese - 1 cup (200 g)
  • Smoked Salmon - 7 200 g
  • Extra virgin olive oil - 3 tbsp (40 g)
  • Pink peppercorn - to taste (or other pepper)
  • Basil - to taste
  • Fine salt - to taste

We chose cavatelli for this dish, perfect with the cream, but you could also use spaghetti or any other type of pasta you like.


To prepare pasta with burrata cream and smoked salmon, start with the latter. Start by cutting it into strips 1 and then dice into pieces that are roughly 0.4 inches in size 2. Leave to one side and heat a saucepan filled with salted water on the stove, which you'll use for cooking the pasta. Now turn to the cream. Place the burrata cheese in a tall and narrow container and add the extra virgin olive oil 3.

Add 1 spoon of pink pepper corns 4 and blend into a smooth cream 5 using an immersion blender 6.

Add the cavatelli pasta as soon as the water starts to boil 7. Cook them according to the instructions on the packet. In the meantime place the burrata cream in a large pan, in which you'll toss the pasta. Add a ladle of cooking water 8 to temper the sauce. Drain the pasta as soon as it is cooked and add it to the cream 9.

Add the basil leaves 10 and stir 11. Now add the smoked salmon 12.

Stir some more 13 and toss the pasta on a high flame for a few minutes to achieve the perfect creamy consistency 14. Serve on plates 15.
