Preheat the oven to 425°F (to roast veggies). Start prepping when your oven comes up to temperature! Wash and dry all produce.* Heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. When the pot is hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then farro. Toast, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add enough water to cover (approx. 1-inch). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, until farro is tender, 14-16 min. When farro is tender, remove the pot from heat and drain any excess liquid. Return farro to the same pot and set aside.
Meanwhile, core, then cut bell pepper(s) into 1/2-inch slices. Peel, then finely chop shallots into 1/4-inch pieces. Halve tomatoes. Cut zucchini(s) in half, lengthwise, then into 1/2-inch thick half moons. On a clean cutting board, cut each burrata into quarters. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
On a baking sheet, toss zucchini, peppers and Italian seasoning with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle of oven, stirring halfway through cooking, until veggies are golden-brown and tender, 15-18 min.
Meanwhile, heat a medium pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then shallots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 1-2 min. Add tomatoes, 1 tbsp vinegar (dbl for 4 ppl) and 2 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until tomatoes break down and jam thickens, 4-6 min. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: Use a fork to help break down tomatoes.)
In the pot with farro, add half the tomato-shallot jam, then stir together. Divide farro between plates and top with roasted veggies. Drizzle over any remaining juices from the pan. Top with burrata quarters and remaining tomato-shallot jam.
