  • 80 g Nduja
  • 400 g tomato passata
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • 400 g tagliatelle pasta
  • Burrata 1 or more as desired
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and cook the diced white onion for about 3 minutes until lightly translucent.
  • Add gently the 'nduja and gently break it down. If necessary add some warm water so that it helps the 'nduja to break down and emulsify even further.
  • Once that the 'nduja has fully dissolved, add the tomato passata and mix well. Let the mixture cook for about 15 minutes on low heat.
  • In the meantime, bring to boil a pot filled with water. Once it starts to boil, season with plenty of salt. Add the pasta and cook as instructed on the package or until al dente.
  • As soon as the pasta is ready, add it to the sauce and mix well until all the pasta is covered with the sauce. Add salt and pepper as required.
  • Serve immediately and top it with the fresh burrata cheese.
