Pasta with pesto cream and burrata

Pasta with pesto cream and burrata – Recipe for a quick pasta dish with pesto cream with peas and burrata. This delicious pasta dish is a perfect everyday dish. The pasta dish consists of a creamy pesto cream with basil, thawed peas, sour cream, lemon, parmesan, pine nuts, pasta water and salt and pepper. The pesto cream is tossed with cooked pasta and served with burrata. I have used rigatoni pasta here, but you can also serve it with other types of pasta.

I love pasta dishes like this, where you blend a sauce with vegetables and get a delicious and flavorful sauce. The peas make this sauce slightly sweet and it goes perfectly with the basil, parmesan and pine nuts.

Also try my other pasta dishes, e.g. this pasta dish with beetroot sauce or this pasta dish with creamy pesto sauce. Have fun!
