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 (10 ounce) box of cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper to season
- 2 tablespoons of pesto sauce
- 2 balls of burrata
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place tomatoes in a small baking pan. Coat with extra virgin olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes or until tomatoes shrink up and burst.
Spread pesto sauce out onto two plates, 1 tablespoon per each plate. Divide roasted tomatoes in half and gently place them on the plate. Then place the burrata over the pesto sauce, 1 ball per plate. Serve with crusty bread.

I love roasted tomatoes with cheese on bread, and usually just added torn basil on top. Pesto sounds even better!

You’re so kind, thank you Kelly! 🙂
Love the combo of roasted tomatoes and pesto… I recently made something with that combo. Sucha cool idea to add cheese. What does burrata taste like?
Burrata is buttery and creamy. It tastes amazing! It’s similar to buffalo mozzarella but with a creamy center. I think you’ll enjoy it. 🙂
So many names of cheese to lean. Today I learned, Burrata! 😀
Burrata is so yummy! But you’re right, there are a lot of cheeses out there I haven’t even come across! 🙂
Sounds delicious – a great combination of flavours, summer on a plate!
Looks divine! That bread is perfectly toasted, I gotta say! It has summer written all over it. Have a great week!
Thank you so much Monica! 🙂 Hope you’re having a terrific week!
This is a great combo, beautiful colors and great contrasting texture.

I love burrata cheese and yes, pesto and tomato are just perfect with this creamy cheese…yum!
Have a great week Anne 😀
Thank you so much Juliana! 🙂
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. 🙂
It is a great cheese John! And I bet it’s even more fabulous with home grown tomatoes. YUM! 🙂
How strange, I just tried it for the first time last night and saw you post this morning! Makes a nice, richer, alternative to mozzarella. Your dish looks better too!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment Phil! 🙂
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!!
Thank you so much Stephala!
I have never tried it before, is it good?
This looks amazing! The perfect light, Summer meal!
This is heaven on plate — i need to try burrata. Asap.
Thanks Kiran! 🙂
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!
Thank you so much Jess! Aren’t burrata fabulous? 🙂
So colorful and a great combination of flavors! Great job!
Thank you Laura!
I don’t think I’ve tried Burrata before, but I see it often these days on food blogs and I started to become interested. This looks delicious and I’ll remember your post when I get Burrata!
Anne, you always seem to amaze me! I love roasted tomatoes AND pesto. Justin and I are planning a trip out there and I can’t wait to try the eating places…and the wine!
Thank you so much Gloria! 🙂 You’ll love the wine country. Shoot me an email before your trip if you want any recommendations – unihomemaker [at] gmail [dot] com. HUGS! 🙂
