Cook broccolini in hot boiling water and drain them when they are still green and crisp. Flatten the dough in thin sheets, create triangular shapes, cook them in hot and salty boiling water with a tablespoon of olive oil for 3 minutes, drain them and cool them in a bowl with cold water. Grease one or more single dose casserole, place a layer of pasta, cover it with burrata cheese, broccolini, raw shrimps and add pesto. Repeat the procedure for each layer of pasta. The final layer will be made of burrata, pesto and a teaspoon of olive oil. Bake it in the oven at 200C for 10 minutes, in the final minutes, add vegetables, slightly cooked shrimps and butter.
