I don’t think I have to do much talking in this post. I might just let the chocolate linguini, vanilla ice cream, raspberries, & caramelized bananas do all that for me ;)
Don’t you just wanna dive on in? Looking at these photos makes me want to re-create this whole work of art all over again.
I know you’re wondering, “where on earth did she find chocolate pasta??”
Remember when Dallas took me to Seattle? I found this at a street market downtown, and there was no way I was leaving it behind! Buying chocolate linguini might have been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Yep, ever ;)
I thought long and hard about how I wanted to prepare it. It had to be pretty, it had to be tasty, it just had to be amazing. No half-assing dark chocolate linguini. So I gathered my ingredients.
The smell of the water boiling reminded me of hot chocolate. The whole process of preparing this dessert was satisfying to all senses. Nothing is sexier than chocolate pasta ;)
I melted the ‘butter’ in a frying pan.
Brown sugar was then added to create a caramelizing sauce.
Finished off with caramelized bananas and a garnish of raspberries, this incredible dessert linguini takes the cake. No pun intended.
Now go! Find yourself some chocolate linguini and have some seriously sexy dessert tonight, just because ;)
From my kitchen to yours <3
1/4 lb dark chocolate linguini
1 1/2 tbsp vegan butter
2 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
1 large ripe banana, peeled and sliced
4 scoops vanilla soy ice cream
1) In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring water to a broil. Add in chocolate linguini and cook until al dente, about 8-10 minutes. When pasta is cooked, drain water. Scoop linguini evenly onto two large plates, and set aside.
2) Meanwhile, in a frying pan over medium heat, warm butter until melted. Add in brown sugar, stirring until mixed.
3) Add sliced bananas to the pan, cooking until golden on both sides.
4) Add two scoops of vanilla soy ice cream to each plate of chocolate linguini. Evenly top with caramelized bananas, garnishing with fresh raspberries.
5) Serve and savour. Dine with someone special, even if it’s your momma. This dessert is one that needs to be shared <3
Before I sign off, I would like to take a moment to remember: Remember that it is the 11th day of the 11th month; remember to take a moment of silence on the 11th hour in honor of all our fallen soldiers; remember to be thankful for the freedom that we have because of their bravery; and remember to be thankful for the men who still fight for us today. We would not have the lives we do without them. I will be watching the parade and ceremony in Nanaimo, in which Dallas (my soldier) is a part. Don’t forget to remember <3
peace & love <3
