Recipe Details


This life-changing (no, but seriously) pasta dish was such a smash hit that we just had to bring it back as a Popular Recipe... and fast. Fresh, tender spaghetti is coated in a comforting tomato and basil sauce, which gets extra depth from white wine and crushed red pepper. Finished with salty Parmesan and a generous portion of ethereally creamy burrata cheese, this is a sort of situation.
