Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

Step 2

While pasta cooks, using a vegetable peeler, shave long ribbons from the carrots and zucchini to equal 2 cups each. Just before draining the pasta, add the carrot ribbons, and stir 30 seconds. Drain pasta mixture and place in a large bowl with zucchini ribbons, tomatoes, lemon zest and juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss.

Step 3

Divide mixture among 4 plates; toss with torn burrata, pistachios, and parsley.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was wonderful. There are so many great flavors going on in this recipe, and they all blend together to create a tasty and filling dish. My husband used my cherry tomatoes to make a lunch salad yesterday which I didn't realize until setting out to make this dish. So, in a pinch, I had to use a fresh tomato which I diced into cherry tomato size chunks. The tomato, zucchini and carrot ribbons add a lovely splash of color against the pasta, and the lemon zest surprisingly added a refreshing tone to this dish. The pistachios added a nice contrast in texture, but next time I wouldn't worry too much if I didn't have pistachios on hand. None of the stores in town had burrata cheese, so I used mozzarella (which Food Network listed as a substitute). I served the pasta dish with Italian Drunken Broccoli spears, and all in all it was a great lunch. Thank you for sharing your recipe, ellie. We enjoyed this great pasta dish!
