  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2-4 servings 1x


  • 1/2 a pound of spaghetti
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic pressed
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces of burrata


Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.

When the pasta is almost done cooking, add 3 tbs olive oil to a large pan on low heat. Press 4 cloves of garlic into the pan and let warm until the garlic is fragrant but has not changed color or browned, about 30 seconds. Add the cooked pasta to the pan and toss. Add the lemon juice and Parmesan cheese. Toss again. Add the tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Gently toss to combine. Top with burrata, pulling the burrata apart so the inside creates a cheesy sauce. Finish with fresh basil to taste.
