  • 500
    fresh tagliatelle or pasta of your choice
  • 500
    bocconcini or burrata broken into bite size pieces
  • fresh basil leaves
  • Parmesan infused olive for drizzling (optional)
  • SAUCE:
  • 1
    assorted baby tomatoes
  • 2
    olive oil
  • 1
    large red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 6
  • 2
    dried oregano
  • freshly ground salt and pepper
  • 1
    fresh basil leaves
  • 2
    red wine vinegar
  • 3
    extra virgin olive oil


Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Place the tomatoes, onion, garlic cloves and herbs onto a large greased baking tray. Season and toss in olive oil. Roast for 45 minutes until blistered and softened.

Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.

Place the roasted tomatoes etc including the cooking juices into a food processor. Add the basil and red wine vinegar and blitz until smooth, now add olive oil and blend until well combined. Season to taste.

Boil the fresh pasta for just a few minutes, drain and reserve some pasta water. Place pasta back into the empty pot and add as much sauce as you like together with a splash of pasta water to just mesh everything together nicely.

If you have any sauce left over, bottle it in a sterilised jar, or use in another dish.

Gently toss mozzarella and fresh basil leaves into the pasta.
Season once more.
Serve immediately drizzled with Parmesan infused oil.
