Italian Recipe - Cannoli Pasta

Posted on 31 July 2017

You read that right! Cannoli it dessert or dinner? A little of both, I suppose. This sweet, delicious pasta is just sweet enough to be a tasty treat, but not too sweet to be enjoyed as dinner. Pair this with a delicious wine like Veglio Bacco Sweet Red or Italo Cescon Prosecco, and you have a decadent dinner just right for a summer night.



  1. Using a large pot. boil water to make the pasta.
  2. In a separate medium-sized pot, melt the butter and sugar over medium heat. Then add the berries and cook until they break down.
  3. Once the raspberry sauce is cooked, remove about 1/2 cup of the sauce and reserve for later. If the reserved sauce is too thick, add a little pasta water. This sauce will be drizzled over the pasta later.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla and ricotta cheese.
  5. Combine the chocolate chips and Migliarese Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a bowl and microwave on low until the chocolate is melted.
  6. When the pasta is cooked to your desired taste, drain it, but do not rinse. Gently combine the pasta with the ricotta berry mixture. 
  7. Spoon the pasta onto plates, then drizzle the reserved raspberry sauce and chocolate sauce over the pasta. Sprinkle well with the chopped pistachios.
  8. Enjoy this decadent pasta dish with the crisp refreshing Italo Cescon Prosecco or the semi-sweet flavors of Veglio Bacco Sweet Red wine.
