linguine with burrata, greens and sweet pepper sauce

On the heels of the.boy forcing me to watch the new Robin Thicke video, all the while confiding in me his deepest hopes that certain female body parts might make a cameo appearance or, better yet, play a leading role.

A big old bowl of pasta that has twice as many veggies as it does noodles?

I feel cleansed at the mere memory of eating it.

My Youtube browsing history, on the other hand, will never be the same.


Roasted red peppers double as both a sauce and a mix-in in this dish, and are tossed with whatever baby greens you can get your hands on, along with thick linguine noodles.

And don’t forget the hefty dose of burrata on top to up the lascivious factor.

I may disapprove of objectifying the female body, but a creamy decadent cheese like burrata?

It’s just asking for it.


And for the record, there were no boobs in the video.

Unless you’re counting Robin Thicke’s, which, apparently the.boy does not.

Another bowl of this linguine with burrata, greens, and sweet pepper sauce to recover from that mental image? Don’t mind if I do.

Linguine with Sweet Pepper Sauce, Burrata, and Greens
Sweet roasted red peppers make a luscious pasta sauce in this dish, which is accented by more roasted pepper slices, wilted baby greens, and decadent burrata cheese.
Yield: 4-6 servings
  • 1 lb linguine
  • 1 lb red bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 lb yellow bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 oz mixed baby greens, like baby kale or baby swiss chard
  • 4-6 oz burrata cheese
  1. Preheat the broiler to high.
  2. Set a pot of salted water to boil, and cook the pasta until al dente, reserving ¼ cup of the cooking water.
  3. Meanwhile, put the bell pepper slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet, skin sides up. Broil until blackened, about 8-10 minutes. Wrap the peppers in foil or place in a container with a cover. Let stand for 10 minutes and then peel. Set half of each color of the peppers aside. Put the rest into a food processor and puree.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil to the pan and heat until sizzling. Add in the garlic and saute for 2 minutes, or until tender. Add the reserved cooking liquid, bell pepper puree, salt and black pepper. Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Add in the greens and cook until wilted.
  5. Slice the reserved bell peppers. Toss them with the pasta, greens, and sauce. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Divide among serving bolls and top each with burrata.

  1. That’s a pretty funny story, Joanne! I don’t know that I’ve ever had burrata cheese before – I wasn’t even sure what it was when I read the title. This pasta dish looks so fresh and yummy.

  2. Sune Moolman says:

    Loving the sweet pepper sauce! Can’t wait to try it.

  3. Kathryn says:

    Oh, this sounds totally amazing! My boyfriend isn’t a huge fan of tomato-based sauces but a creamy pepper sauce sounds absolutely perfect. Can’t wait to try this!

  4. I’ve actually had a craving for pasta lately (we don’t eat it often) and was planning on making some this week. This dish looks fantastic! I especially love the sound of the sweet pepper sauce.

  5. I have been hearing SO much about burrata. I know it’s cheese…but, what is it similar? It looks supa creamy and yummy like goat cheese and I really wanna try it.
    Especially over top of this linguine with ALL the veggies! Yumo! Pinned 🙂

      Basically burrata is like mozzarella stuffed with ricotta. But creamier. It’s the best! I know Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods sell it, as would any Italian deli or grocery store!

  6. Stephanie says:

    You are hilarious!

    Eating burrata is so decadent! It is like eating butter straight up! Thanks for such a yummy recipe.

  7. This sounds right up my street! Love simple pasta dishes. This looks so summery and delicious.

  8. That looks amazing! I’ve never tried burrata, but I’ll have to after seeing this! 🙂

  9. Meg says:

    This looks fantastic — and I don’t think I’ve ever had burrata? If I have, it’s escaped my notice. Can we still be friends? 🙂

  10. Toasted peppers are the best flavor intensifier. I have yet to find and try Burrata 🙁 boys are goons 😉

  11. Oh gosh, I’m giggling at the thought of your video experiences. I think a double heaping of this would be indicated 😛

  12. Burrata cheese is so good, especially in the summer – I usually get it from Trader Joe’s. Your pasta looks phenomenal!

  13. Don’t think I have ever had burrata cheese…the pasta looks very delicious.

  14. Olivia says:

    I honestly don’t think I’ve ever eaten burrata before, but I see it used on some dishes and it seems to add a really great flavor to things. I think I should try it 😉

  15. Love the red pepper sauce! This looks fantastic!

  16. danielle says:

    I have so much trouble finding Burrata around here. I love all the veges in this dish!

  17. I love burrata on anything, but this looks especially delicious!

  18. I am strong believer that buratta makes EVERYTHING better! Almost anything could benefit from the magic of buratta!

  19. oh yum! what an awesome pasta dish!!

  20. Now I need to check out this video on YouTube! Haha! I totally agree with you though, burrata is begging to be objectified. This pasta looks sooo good! Yum, yum, yum.

  21. Speaking of Robin Thicke’s video. I can’t say I’m too excited about that. I loathe anything to do with stripping for the fact that women are so objectified. I’ve heard both sides of the story – that they feel powerful when “dancing” and hey, in other countries it is no big deal. Unfortunately in ours, and many others, it has been made a big deal. Once we all start walking around topless then maybe it won’t be as exciting. Ha!

  22. alyssa says:

    Anything with burrata is pretty much amazing! This looks great 🙂

  23. Kate says:

    I tend to go heavy on the veggies with my pasta too.

  24. Eileen says:

    Hooray for roasted peppers! I just had a bunch of them myself–so good. Now I want to make up another batch for a big bowl of pasta deliciousness!

  25. Not a fan of Robin thICKe. Just reading that makes me want to cleanse my mind with this awesome dish!

  26. Burrata looks so wonderfully creamy and amazing. I seriously need to try it!

  27. Claudia says:

    Sounds terrific, and would be great with my baby arugula. The bells in our Natural foods store are from Holland, too funny going all the way to Hawaii. Our growers here are slacking off.

  28. Deena kakaya says:

    Serious phwoar factor Joanne, that’s summer in a dreamy sleepy way x

    I do adore a recipe that contains more vegetables than anything. This looks decadent!
