Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup minced shallot
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • Recipe

    To a skillet on medium-high heat, add oil. Once hot, add the cherry tomatoes and shallot. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the shallot is translucent and tomatoes start to burst. Add garlic and tomato paste and cook an additional minute, stirring often. Carefully smash the tomatoes, then stir in the chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then stir in the orzo and salt. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes, stirring every 3-4 minutes. Uncover, stir in parmesan and cook an additional 1-2 minutes or until the orzo is al dente and the sauce is thickened. Turn off the heat and stir in fresh basil. Pour in a serving dish and garnish with burrata cheese, either in pieces or one large ball, basil and halved tomatoes.
