Creamy Rigatoni Topped with Crisp Prosciutto and Burrata Cheese
1/2 pound of Rigatoni pasta
2 tbsp. butter
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup gruyere cheese, grated
1/2 cup goat cheese, crumbled
1 cup heavy cream
4 ounces prosciutto
1 (8 ounce) ball burrata cheese
Freshly cracked black pepper
Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add pasta noodles and cook to al dente, approx. 9-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan over medium heat, add the butter. Once butter melted add the onions and cook until soft and browned, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté a few more minutes. Lower heat and add the white wine and sauté for additional 3 minutes. Then remove from heat.
In a medium sauce pan, add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Add your gruyere and goat cheese whisking for about 5 minutes or until cheese completely combined and melted.
While the cheese sauce is simmering turn your oven broiler to high. Place prosciutto on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Broil for about 2 minutes, or until crisp (keep a close eye on it so it doesn't burn). Remove from broiler and allow to cool just a bit. Slice into strips.
Add cooked pasta in the cream sauce and toss until well coated. Add the prosciutto strips and top with burrata. Season to taste with more pepper if needed.
