EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
The combination of burrata cheese and anchovies has become a must in Italian cuisine and you can use it for both simple croutons and more elaborate dishes such as risotto with anchovies, lemon and burrata.
The burrata, with its sweetness, tempers the strong tones of anchovies. is a cheese that is often combined with fish, from mussels to clams, up to shrimps.
If you do not have it at home, you can get a similar result by replacing it with ricotta cheese, but I recommend you try the original recipe because it is really special.
