Ingredients list

  • 400 g linguine
  • 300 g burrata cheese
  • 15 g basil
  • 400 g zucchini
  • 20 g pine nuts
  • 50 ml olive oil extra virgin
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • sunflower oil for frying


  • Put the burrata in a bowl and cut into coarse pieces. Then put it in the blender with basil, olive oil, salt and pepper and process until you get a nice cream.
  • Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil and cook the pasta "al dente" according to package directions.
  • Wash the zucchini and remove both ends. First cut into thin oblong slices and then cut these again into fine oblong strips. (Tip: If you have a vegetable ppiralizer, this is even easier!)
  • Heat sunflower oil in a pan (to approx. 160°C/320°F) and briefly deep-fry the zucchini strips in it. Remove with a slotted spoon or pasta tongs and place on a plate lined with kitchen paper to drain.
  • Heat a frying pan and toast the pine nuts over high heat until golden brown all over. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • Now add the burrata cream to the pan and heat gently on the lowest heat. Add a ladle of pasta water and mix well. Drain the finished pasta, then pour it directly into the pan and mix it with the burrata cream.
  • Add the zucchini strips and the toasted pine nuts to the pan and, with the flame turned off, mix everything thoroughly again.
  • Finally, arrange on deep plates, garnish with a little basil and serve hot.
    Buon appetito!
