Burrata with Roasted Tomatoes and Pesto

Burrata with Roasted Tomatoes and Pesto

It’s the start of another week! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

A couple of months ago when Chris and I were in Napa, we had lunch at this cute little wine bar.  One of the dishes we ordered was their housemade burrata.  It was served with tomatoes and pesto on some grilled crusty bread.  It was heaven! I couldn’t stop thinking about this dish since then so I decided to attempt this at home.

I went the quick way and used store-bought pesto.  I’m guessing that’s why the pesto isn’t all that vibrant green in my photos.  ::: sigh ::: It was delicious but would have tasted (and looked) better with a homemade sauce. Enjoy your week!

  1. I love burrata cheese and yes, pesto and tomato are just perfect with this creamy cheese…yum!
    Have a great week Anne :D

  2. Oh, yes. Burrata!!! Such a great cheese, isn’t it? This is a great way to serve it, too, Anne. It’s another reason to eagerly anticipate this season’s tomatoes from my garden. :)

  3. i LOVE burrata – once tomatoes are in season here in New England, I’ll be eating it on the regular with tomatoes and a good sprinkling of Maldon. Great summer dish!!

  4. Oh yum, Anne – this looks like such a fantastic light summer lunch or appetizer. Burrata is so addictive -I had a caprese salad with burrata and such similar flavors to this dish a while back, and it was one of the most fantastic salads I’d ever had. Beautiful!
