4tablespoonsextra-virgin olive oilmore for serving
3teaspoonssea saltmore to taste
1.5teaspoonspeppermore to taste
4large balls of fresh burrata cheese
In a large cast-iron skillet combine pasta, water, sliced onions, tomatoes, cayenne, basil, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil on high.
Cook the pasta stirring so it doesn't burn on the bottom.
Cook for about 8-10 minutes until pasta is al dente and water is pretty much evaporated, but not totally gone.
Use tongs to serve in four bowls and place 1 large burrata cheese in each bowl with the pasta. Drizzle with more olive oil, add fresh basil and season with salt and pepper if needed.
You can cook this pasta in vegetable or chicken broth instead of water to add more flavor. Just alter the salt if you do that. The recipe can be made with spaghetti noodles.Pasta can be cooked in a cast-iron skillet or a stainless steel skillet.
