I’m all about the carbs, especially while camping. There’s something about being in the great outdoors that just begs to be paired with a big ol’ plate of pasta. This is an extra hearty take on a super simple one-pot pasta. Sausages are browned, tomatoes are blistered, and the spaghetti is cooked in the pan, no draining needed. I added some hand-torn chunks of burrata on top for a bit of extra decadence – not your typical camp cheese, but if you bring it with you on your first day and use it right away, I say, why not?! You’re camping, treat yourself!
One Pot Pasta with Sausage, Tomatoes, and Burrata Recipe
serves 2 very generously
- 1 link farmers sausage, sliced
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- oil, for the pan
- 3-4 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper flakes
- 6 oz spaghetti
- 2 cups water
- 1 ball burrata
Heat up a large cast iron pan over medium high heat and fry the sausage slices on both sides until lightly browned. Remove from the pan and in the leftover fat rendered out from the sausage, blister the tomatoes until the skins burst and slightly soft. Remove from the pan.
Heat up a touch of oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and pepper flakes, stirring often, until lightly golden. Add the water and pasta to the pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil, stirring and flipping pasta with tongs until pasta is al dente and cooked through and water as nearly evaporated, about 8-9 minutes. Add the sausage and tomatoes back into the pan. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper and top with burrata. Enjoy!
