Chocolate Pasta with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Posted on 25 January 2016

Chocolate pasta? Absolutely! And you definitely need to try it! This delicious specialty pasta will add a whole new dimension to your pantry. Natura Amica has integrated the flavor of cocoa into a pasta without creating a "sweet like dessert" taste. Made with durum wheat semolina flour and cacao (not to be confused with cocoa), this pasta is an all-natural choice. Why cacao? It is a pure, raw form of chocolate (not processed like cocoa) and contains a great number of antioxidants. 

A delicious accompaniment of chocolate is, of course, cream! So we have created a cream with gorzonola cheese to combine the saltiness of gorgonzola cheese with the chocolate pasta.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  2. Melt butter in pan over medium-high heat. Add the flour and stir to thicken. Continue to cook for one minute, stirring constantly.
  3. Slowly add the milk and heavy cream, stirring constantly to combine the flour mixture with the milk and to avoid clumping.
  4. Lower the heat and add the gorgonzola cheese, stirring constantly until melted. Reduce heat to a low simmer to keep warm.
  5. Cook pasta in boiling water for 6 to 8 minutes or to desired taste.
  6. Drain the pasta, but do not rinse. 
  7. Gently combine the pasta and sauce. 
  8. Serve with a sprinkling of gorgonzola cheese. 

Pair this dish with a crisp white wine, like Corte del Sol Soave, or a harmonious red such as Italo Cescon Merlot
