Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the pasta following pack instructions. Meanwhile, put the chilli, shallots, oil, lemon zest, vinegar, sugar and tomatoes into a big mortar. If yours isn’t big enough, put it all in a bowl and just use the pestle in that. Add a good amount of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and bash everything together.

  • STEP 2

    Drain the pasta and toss together with the tomato mixture and mozzarella. Scatter over the basil and serve immediately.

RECIPE TIPS
BURRATA

It’s worth getting hold of burrata – a softer, creamier relative of mozzarella – for this dish. It will go oozingly melty and create a sauce that clings to the pasta.
