4-Ingredient Pappardelle Pasta with Burrata and Lemon

Cook time15 minutes


  • 12oz Pappardelle pasta (good brand such as Al Dente)
  • 2 cups Pasta sauce (good brand such as Rao's Homemade)
  • 2 - 4oz Burrata balls
  • 1 Lemon


In a large pot, add about 4 quarts of water (to give the noodles plenty of room to cook). Bring to a boil and salt the water with 2 teaspoons of salt. This will help infuse flavor into the noodles. DO NOT add oil to the water - the sauce won't stick to noodles.
Once the water has come to a full boil, add the noodles and cook al dente (according to the instructions on the package).
Drain the pasta. Return the noodles to the pan and turn off the heat. Add the two cups of sauce and stir well to thoroughly coat as needed. Add more sauce if desired.
Break the balls of burrata into chunks and toss into the pasta. Continue to stir, some of the cheese will melt and others will remain in lumps. The pan should still be warm enough to warm the sauce and cheese.
Serve warm and zest the lemon over the top of each dish.
