Spaghetti with burrata and roasted cherry tomatoes

Burrata is a delicious fresh Italian cheese composed by mixing mozzarella and cream.
The outer layer is a thin and firm shell of mozzarella, on the other hand the inside is a doughy and tender mixture, called stracciatella, made with fresh cream and mozzarella’s snippets. This cheese was created in the Southern regions of Italy, known for farming and agriculture.

Now the burrata is easily sourced in many cities outside Italy; in Copenhagen you will find it at Eataly store or made by La treccia.
