Lets face it, pasta is created equal! Whether it’s in little cork screws, raviolis or long thin noodles it is all basically flour and water. Some types of flour are different and some regions of the world have created unique shapes and sauces to compliment the pasta. Pasta such as Grandma’s has fresh vegetables for both colour and flavour. With some shapes of pasta the sauce will adhere better than others, such as tomato sauce sticks to rotini better than spaghetti due to the rough edges of the rotini.
What we are now discussing is a seldom thought of version of pasta, Chocolate! That’s right, pasta for a savory dish or a scrumptious dessert. From Chocolate Fettuccine with Peas and Pancetta to Chocolate Fettuccine with fresh fruit and whipped cream, chocoholics can have it all. Yum, Yum!
I have done a tonne of research on the subject and I have yet to discover what genius decided that this was a good idea. Was it a man or a women? Probably a woman who obviously had a very serious sweet tooth. Was it made first in the mid-east or in Italy? Who knows the answer to these riddles? I just know that we love it!
My all time favorite dessert or snack is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in any shape, size or form. From Reese’s Pieces to ice cream, Chocolate and Peanut Butter hits all of my high notes! Well I found a recipe for Chocolate Pasta with Peanut Butter Suace that I want to share. http://recipes.ilovepeanutbutter.com/chocolate-pasta-with-peanut-butter-sauce/ We have the pasta, all you need is the creativity and an urge for chocolate.
See you next week and, “Bon appetite”.
