I made homemade spaghetti and meat sauce for my family tonight. Afterwards, my son and husband went to a Lacrosse game and I was left alone to myself. Not good when I am in a baking mood and I want sweets. LOL. I made homemade cinnamon buns yesterday. Today I decided hmm.. I have leftover pasta dough what is a girl to do. No wasting food my Father always said and he was Chef, so we made all kinds of things from leftovers.
Well the Chocolate fairy in me was calling out saying, we must sprinkle some yummy goodness on that leftover pasta. So here we are, Chocolate Fettuccine Pasta. Okay true confession: I made the pasta before hand so I couldn’t incorporate the cocoa powder. I took the leftover dough rolled it in cocoa powder, kneaded the powder into the dough and sent it through my pasta machine a few times until the pasta was chocolate. Frankenstein of Pasta lives!! It LIVES. It’s late. I am cracking myself up. Hee Hee!
Get to the recipe already. Right. So I boiled the pasta but not all the way. I took the Fettuccine ribbons and added them to a saucepan with butter, milk, cocoa powder, honey, organic cane sugar and sea salt. Really. I threw this together. Pasta need a sauce so made a chocolate sauce, added raspberries and walnuts. OH YES! CHOCOLATE IS VERY ANTI AGING FOR MY SKINCARE PEEPS.
That doesn’t sound like a recipe but it was throw together effort to please the Chocolate Fairy, but hold on before you stop reading. I did happen to pull a recipe out of the clouds of my mind. Here is closely what I did.
Chocolate Fettuccine Pasta with Chocolate Sauce
1 cup fresh chocolate fettuccine ( cook for a 30 seconds -1 minute, not until done)
I boiled the pasta but did not cook it all the way. I added to a saucepan:
- 2 tbsp of butter
- 1/2 or 3/4 of milk ( add this in slowly to get the consistency you want for the sauce)
- 1/2 cup of cocoa powder.
- I tossed the pasta gently into the mixture and let it cook med low.
- I added about 2 tbsp of organic honey
- 1 tsp of organic sugar to sweeten. Toss everything again gently. I allowed the sauce to get thick.
- Removed it from the heat, placed it in my serving bowl. Added raspberries and chopped walnuts.
