Pasta con Nutella

Pasta con Nutella

Can you believe I have never tasted Nutella until now? Time to give it a taste test. I really like hazelnuts and I must say that I do like the taste of this dark, nutty spread. Now is the time to use that packet of chocolate tube pasta sitting in the pantry to make this Pasta con Nutella.

This tube pasta is about an inch in diameter and stuffing it appears to be the way to go. Not wanting to run to the store again, I combined the Nutella with some cream cheese I had in the fridge. If you are going to the store, I suggest getting some mascarpone cheese as it would do really well here. The filling was rich and creamy with a slight alcoholic taste coming from the milky white chocolate liqueur. The Nutella provided the sweetness and a nutty flavor. Do give it a try.

The only cooking involved here is boiling the pasta. Here is what you need to put this dessert together.

    Biren, you have used many of my favorites here. I love Nutella, chocolate (pasta), and cream cheese. So smart to combine Nutella with cream cheese as I find Nutella a bit too sweet on it’s own. As for the white chocolate liqueur, never tried, but would absolutely love to as I’m a big Bailey’s fan. Amazing concoction my friend!

    Oh wow!! This is like cannoli on steroids LOL I LOVE it!!! Did I ever tell you I’m a Nutella junkie? I practically lived on Nutella sandwiches the first 10 years of my life ;) The presentation is so elegant – like a 5 star restaurant plate. Hope you ace the competition and hang in there till December!!

    So glad you’ve finally had a taste of Nutella – chocolate heaven!

      Haha! That’s too funny! It has always been peanut butter when I was a kid. I don’t know where Nutella was all my life until now. I do love it. Did you know it is great on those cream crackers. I hope I won’t try to make up for lost time or it’ll show on my hips and waist…lol!

      Hi Jackie, thanks for visiting! I found this pasta at Homegoods around Christmas time but have not seen it since. The pasta is a product of Italy and is made by Borgo de’ Medici. I am sure someone here in the US must carry them.

    I’ve always been a bit unsure about the whole concept of “dessert pasta”, but when you dress them up like that- Wow! I’m now a believer, they look amazing.
