  • 1 2- ounce package prosciutto roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes 1 pint
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 piece of burrata 8 ounces
  • 4 cups marinara sauce
  • Bread or crackers for serving
  • 1 package pasta of choice
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil for garnish
  • Red pepper flakes for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of avocado oil in a small skillet over medium. Once hot, add prosciutto and cook for 2 minutes, then flip and cook another 2 to 4 minutes until crispy. Set aside. 
  • In the same skillet once prosciutto is removed, add more oil if needed (1 tablespoon), the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the tomatoes and let them cook until they burst, about 10 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add marinara into the tomato mixture and simmer to cook sauce down for 10 minutes.
  • Pour marinara sauce to a 13×9 inch baking dish (or similar size) and place the ball of burrata in the center.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is warmed through and slightly melted.
  • While baking, cook your pasta based on package instructions and set aside.
  • Top with crispy prosciutto and pour in pasta and mix to combine.
  • Top with mozzarella cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve hot. Garnish with fresh basil if desired.
