To make this dish whole30 or paleo approved use zucchini noodles or cooked spaghetti squash also remove the cheese. You can add many things to this dish, I made it as close to the recipe as possible. I did use cherry tomatoes in place of grape tomatoes, & like I stated above if you cannot find or do not have burrata cheese you can use fresh mozzarella cheese, or simply to with grated Parmesan. You can add sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, grilled chicken, zucchini, Italian squash, etc. Be creative :)
