Spinach and Burrata Pasta

Burrata is a luscious Italian cheese made by mixing cream and unspun mozzarella curds together. The mixture is then inserted into the center of a ball of fresh mozzarella. It can be found in some supermarkets, at specialty foods shops, and at Italian markets. Substitute fresh mozzarella if you can’t find burrata.
