1boxpasta of your choiceI used fusilli pugliesi from Lidl. Penne, rotini, campanelle, and similar pastas would also be good choices.
128 ozcan crushed tomatoes
4clovesgarlicminced or grated
½tspkosher saltplus more to taste
¼cupgrated parmesan cheese
8ozburrata or ricotta cheese
¼cupshaved parmesan(OK to use more grated parm. This is for topping at the end.)
Place crushed tomatoes, garlic, onion powder, basil, and salt into a large saucepan and stir to combine.
Cover and heat on medium. Once it starts to pop or bubble, reduce to low.
Let the sauce cook on low for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste the sauce periodically and add more salt if needed. (You can begin cooking the pasta before the sauce is done.)
Add heavy cream into the sauce, stirring constantly until it’s well-blended. Do the same for ¼ cup of the grated parmesan. If you’re using the sauce right away, keep it warm on the stovetop until it’s ready to be used. Otherwise, refrigerate until you’re ready to use it.
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain (do not rinse) and return the pasta to the pot.
Add the sauce and stir until noodles are evenly coated.
Serve with a small scoop of burrata or ricotta on top, and garnish with grated or shaved parmesan.
If you make this ahead to reheat later, you might need to add a little water to the dish before reheating, as the sauce can get clumpy.
