Spicy Veggie Pasta with Burrata

Why This Pasta is a Game-Changer

Brahmi Pasta: A Healthful Twist

Starting with the base, we’ve chosen Brahmi pasta, renowned for its higher protein and fiber content. Unlike regular pasta, Brahmi is a friend to your gut, aiding digestion and keeping you fuller for longer. It’s an excellent choice for maintaining a healthy gut flora.

Olive Oil: Liquid Gold

Olive oil, a cornerstone of healthy cooking, brings heart-healthy fats into our dish. Its anti-inflammatory properties are well-documented, making it not just a culinary delight but also a boon for your health.

Green Beans and Eggplant: Veggie Powerhouses

Green beans add crunch and a dose of antioxidants, which combat free radicals and support overall health. Eggplant, with its fiber and range of nutrients, contributes to heart health and blood sugar control.

Tomato Puree: Lycopene Rich

Tomato puree isn’t just about deep flavor. It’s packed with lycopene, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory effects and potential to reduce the risk of certain diseases.

Season with Care

Dried oregano adds more than just flavor—it’s known for its antibacterial properties. Sea salt, used sparingly, enhances the dish’s flavors without overwhelming it. And for those who like a bit of heat, red pepper flakes are adjustable to taste, boosting metabolism and contributing to the dish’s anti-inflammatory benefits.

Burrata Cheese: Creamy Goodness

The star finish, burrata cheese, introduces a creamy, luxurious texture that pairs beautifully with the spicy, vegetable-packed pasta. While cheese is often indulged in moderation, burrata brings calcium and protein to the dish, rounding out its nutritional profile.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Course Dinner, Gluten Free, Lunch, One-pot Meal
Servings 4 people


  • 8 oz Penne Pasta (I use Brahmi pasta, higher in protein and fiber, and easier for gut health)
  • 2 finely chopped Shallots
  • 3 minced Garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 cup trimmed and halved Green Beans
  • 1 small cubed Eggplant
  • 1 cup Organic Tomato Puree
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • ½ teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper (adjust to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 4 oz torn Burrata Cheese


  • A handful of Fresh Herbs (like basil or parsley) for garnish


  • Cook the Pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the penne pasta and cook according to package instructions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water before draining.
  • Sauté Vegetables: While the pasta cooks, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and shallots, and sauté until fragrant and translucent. Add the chopped eggplant and green beans. Pour in about half of the reserved pasta water, cover, and let the vegetables steam for about 5-7 minutes, or until they begin to soften.
  • Simmer with Tomato Puree: Uncover and stir in the tomato puree, dried oregano, sea salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. Let the sauce simmer for another 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
  • Combine Pasta and Sauce: Add the cooked, drained pasta to the skillet with the vegetable and tomato mixture. Toss well to coat the pasta evenly. If the sauce is too thick, add more reserved pasta water to reach desired consistency.
  • Serve with Burrata: Transfer the pasta to serving bowls. Top each serving with torn burrata cheese and, if using, sprinkle with fresh herbs for an added burst of flavor.
