Chocolate Pasta with White Chocolate Liqueur Sauce

Chocolate Pasta with White Chocolate Liqueur Sauce

Firstly I would like to thank all of you for your concern about my electrical and electronic problems. We had to replace the dish washer as it has outlived its usefullness and was not worth repairing. Ro-Ri San fixed the drain for the washing machine and it’s working fine now. I did have to mop up the spill but it wasn’t too bad. Good thing it did not flood the basement.

As for my PC, it is totally out and I am still awaiting those recovery disks in the mail as a last ditch effort to save it. My own set of recovery disks could not wake it up no matter how many times I tried. It was just stressful and sad as that baby is only one and a half years old and I have grown pretty accustomed to it. I am surviving with Ro-Ri San’s netbook and have loaded this little guy with some software so that I can update my blog. It is not like my powerhouse but it will have to do for now.

Enough of updates, let’s move on to the rest of today’s post. Recently while browsing at a kitchen store, this chocolate pasta caught my eye. This pasta is made in Germany and is specifically for dessert. I couldn’t pass it up. It even came with a recipe on how to prepare it. They suggested stewed fruit and ice cream but I wanted something a little more exciting. Here is an opportunity for me to use some of that white chocolate liqueur that I have thus far used only on ice cream.

    Good luck with all those technical difficulties! There are few things sadder than having a computer that won’t work :( This pasta looks great, what a treat!

      That’s true…fewer things are sadder than a cold computer for a food blogger :( Good thing there are such “finds” (chocolate pasta) to cheer me up.

    Hey Biren! Glad you got everything fixed. I know that kind of thing that is so irritating.
    You know what?! I’ve never seen chocolate egg pasta. That sounds so good! And I’ve actually never seen a bag of Ghirardelli white chocolate chips either;) I’ll have to look for those, b/c I love real white chocolate. This all looks so good…!

    Sorry about your washer and computer problems Biren! I love the sound of this chocolate pasta! The sauce sounds just perfect on it. I am going to keep my eye out for the pasta – would love to try it.

    Computer problems are such a pain. I didn’t know how addicted to the Internet I was until my son broke my laptop last year. Now I always have a mini on spare. I know, I’m pathetic.

    This looks ridiculously awesome, Biren! I’m a huge white chocolate fan, but white chocolate with chocolate pasta?! Now that’s what I’m talking about! Love the touch with the raspberries, makes the dish irresistible.

    Oh my god!! This looks amazing. I’ve often thought of a dish like this and what it would be like. Now you’ve shown me. This really makes me want a pasta machine.

  6. says

    This is a first for me; I have never seen chocolate pasta before! I love what you did with it. It looks absolutely delicious!

    I’ll send some “fix it” vibes your way for the computer. Hopefully you can kick it back into submission!

  7. says

    Oh dear! I can imagine how bad you must feel about your PC – not even two years old!!! *sigh* Hope the recovery disks help. Crossing my fingers for you :)

    This is just magnificent Biren! I love the idea of chocolate pasta, though I’ve never seen or even thought of it! The pairing of white chocolate sauce with raspberries is classic and so beautiful with the pasta. Talk about thinking out of the dessert box :D The photos are beautiful but the first photo and the one of the pasta boiling in the pot really caught my eye!!

    Hi Biren, I have never seen chocolate pasta but I think you have really put together a special dessert with it. Your photos look great and I’m sorry about your PC, I just had my laptop meltdown and lost a lot of pictures, so sad, technology is wonderful when it behaves:)

    Well now that looks alot better than the chocolate pasta dish I made. I’m in the same boat. Hard drive on my laptop died. I’m anxiously waiting for my data to be retreived. Crossing fingers.

  11. says

    Wow, this looks great! When I read the title I thought it would be something savoury, but (thankfully) it’s not…I am not that adventurous and still cannot imagine that chocolate could taste good with savoury dishes ;).

    Dear Biren – All of a sudden ‘dessert pasta’ is making an appearance on the blogosphere. What fun! Mo just did a recipe too not too long ago. I can’t wait for more of this.

    Yours with the raspberries and white chocolate is just good for words :)

    Ciao, Devaki @ weavethousandflavors
