  • 1 lb / 500g package PrimoGrano Sagne a Pezzi pasta (or any short-cut pasta shape preferred)
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 3-5 tbsp Zupan’s olive oil
  • 2 pints fresh cherry tomatoes
  • 2 ears of sweet corn, removed from the cob
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 large pinch dried Herbes de Provence
  • 2-3 pieces (6-9oz) burrata cheese
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Large handful of freshly torn basil
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • Flaky salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: red pepper flakes or red pepper infused olive oil


  1. Bring a large stockpot filled with water to a boil. Season with 2 tbsp salt. Add the pasta and cook until al dente as per the package directions. Before straining, reserve 1-2 cups of the salty pasta water. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, add 1-2 tbsp olive oil and turn the heat to medium. Add the cherry tomatoes, stir to coat in oil and then let cook for about 3 minutes. Then add the corn along with the salt, pepper, lemon zest, and Herbes de Provence. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes until the tomatoes begin to burst. Add more oil if you’d like to coat.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium. Add another tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, the cooked pasta, and 1 cup of salty pasta water. Allow the sauce to reduce for 1-2 minutes, adding more pasta water if necessary. The sauce should reduce to a beautiful consistency that clings to the cooked pasta.
  4. Off the heat, tear the burrata over the top. Add the lemon juice, basil, and chives. Garnish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and additional basil, if desired. Finish with sea salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
