When I was in Tuscany this past summer, I saw Pasta di Cacao (Chocolate Pasta) everywhere! The United States is just catching on to this craze, but it is SO very expensive to buy in the specialty shops. Would you believe an 8 ounce bag of chocolate pasta is almost ten dollars! Yes! I kid you not!! But, guess, what?? It is so easy to make, and the best part... it cost just a fraction of that luxury price! Yes sirrreee!!
This savory chocolate pasta, I was told by a chef in Montalcino, Tuscany, is best served with a cream sauce..preferable an alfredo type sauce with extra Pecorino Romano for topping.
It is off the charts yummy!!! Hope you make this and impress all your guests!!.
2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
