Burrata in Pesto

Burrata in Pesto – Simple and Fresh.

Burrata in pesto makes an easy fresh appetizer to serve with bread or on a pasta dish. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE buttery cheeses but sometimes I want something fresh and light and that’s where Burrata comes into play. Burrata is an artisanal fresh cheese found in southern Italy. It’s a round of mozzarella with stracciatella di bufala and cream inside. It has a creamy milky flavor that’s perfect for bread, pasta dishes, and pizza.
