Prosciutto and burrata were already a match made in heaven, but the addition of sweet spring peas takes this pairing to the next level. After a quick cook with aromatics in olive oil, sliced sugar snap peas are tossed with toasted tortellini, herbs, and plenty of lemon zest, then topped with salty, tender prosciutto and a ball of creamy burrata. Despite all of the rich and decadent ingredients in this pasta, the sweet green peas take center stage and make this the ideal springtime pasta.
Pan-frying the tortellini in butter gives it a beautiful golden brown color and deliciously crispy exterior, offering some contrast to the soft interior. To help achieve the perfect pan-fried tortellini, be sure to undercook them slightly when boiling so that the pasta doesn’t tear when it’s being tossed in a hot pan.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
