Autumn Inspired Trecce Pasta with Spicy ‘Nduja & Burrata Cream
                                                                       A deliciously spicy pasta with an autumn twist.

Trecce pasta with spicy ‘ndjua, burrata cream, fennel, and butternut squash is an absolutely delicious way to celebrate fall ingredients in a pasta dish.  But, what is trecce pasta you ask? It is pasta that is made in the shape of braids. It is perfect for capturing all the delicious nooks and crannies of a sauce. This autumn-inspired recipe is a perfect match for trecce pasta since it has a tantalizing combination of butternut squash, fennel, burrata cheese, and mildly spicy ‘nduja. Yes, ‘nduja! ‘Nduja is a spicy spreadable pork salami that hails from the region of Calabria in Southern Italy. ‘Nduja is one of my personal favorite salami from Calabria. You’ll find it on pizza, stuffed in gnocchi, and as a spread on crusty Italian bread.  

This is a spicy lovers kind of pasta! The ‘nduja adds a fiery autumn touch to this dish and it pairs exceptionally well with the burrata cheese sauce. As you swirl the pasta through it all you’ll begin to see why it is the perfect pasta for this recipe.

You will enjoy making this dish just as much as eating it. It’s a little different for fall and absolutely delicious. Now let’s get to cooking!
