Pasta, Simple Dinners, Spring, Summer
250gbucatini pasta,or any shape of your choice
100gsalami,roughly torn into pieces
2garlic cloves,finely chopped
1chilli,finely sliced (or to taste)
350gcherry tomatoes,sliced in half
Drizzle of balsamic or red wine vinegar
Half bunch fresh basil,finely sliced with a few leaves reserved for garnish
Drizzle of olive oil
Salt and pepper,to taste
Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until al dente and then drain, reserving a small amount of the pasta water.
While the pasta is cooking, place the torn salami into a frying pan and cook on medium heat until crispy. Add the garlic and chilli and stir for a minute until fragrant. Turn down the heat and add the cherry tomatoes, stirring for 5 minutes or until the tomatoes are starting to burst and release their juice. Add a good drizzle of balsamic or red wine vinegar. Add the chopped basil and stir until wilted.
Remove from the heat and add the drained pasta to the frypan, mixing to combine all ingredients and coat the pasta in the tomato juices. If it’s looking a little dry, add 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta water and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve with halved burrata ball on each plate and some fresh basil leaves on top.
