Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
Halve the baby plum tomatoes and pop them onto a piece of foil with a drizzle of oil, then season with salt and pepper.
Fold the foil, sealing on all sides to create a parcel. Pop onto a large baking tray.
When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until softened, 15-20 mins.
Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 0.5 tsp salt.
When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins.
Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.
While the pasta cooks, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the garlic and fry until fragrant, 1 min.
Stir in the creme fraiche, vegetable stock paste and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount). Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, 5-6 mins.
Once thickened, stir the pesto into the sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
When the tomatoes have about 5 mins left, Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.
Once the oil is hot, lay in the bacon rashers and fry until crispy and brown, 3-4 mins on each side. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.
Meanwhile, cut the burrata in half.
When the linguine and roasted tomatoes are ready, stir both into the pesto sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
When the bacon is ready, break it up into smaller shards.
Share your ultimate pesto linguine between your serving bowls. Scatter over the rocket leaves.
Arrange over the bacon, then top with the burrata. Finish by drizzling over the balsamic glaze.
