Cooking Pasta:

There are a few things to remember when it comes to cooking pasta: the directions on the package are almost always spot on, so use them. Make sure the water is salted for flavor and have at least 3-4 inches of water above the pasta so it has room to expand as it cooks. Stir often to avoid sticking. 

Because I have significantly cut back on grains, I used Cappello’s Grain Free Pasta for this recipe. Of course you can use your favorite brand of fettuccine. Cappello’s cooks in 60 seconds and is made with almond flour. I like the texure of this pasta much better than any grain/gluten free pasta I have ever tried.

The ‘Chiffonade’

To create ribbons of basil I use a technique called a ‘chiffonade’. Simply stack your basil leaves, roll as tightly as you can and slice. You end up with thin ribbons of basil.

I love adding toasted pine nuts to just about any pasta dish! If you can only find raw pine nuts, simply place them in pan on medium heat, turn a few times until they are a beautiful golden color and remove from heat.

Burrata Cheese:

Burrata cheese is a combination of mozzarella and cream. When tossed with hot pasta it melts and makes a thick creamy ‘sauce’ without you having to do any additional  work!
