Recipe: Chocolate Fettuccine

One day, while shopping in a specialty food store in London, Ontario, I found a package of Chocolate Fettuccine noodles. The noodles are brown, looked interesting, and I was intrigued about what I could do with them. It took about two years before I had the opportunity to do anything.

I created a dessert, and served the noodles with rum-soaked strawberries, vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Chocolate Fettuccine

  • Fresh whole strawberries
  • Chocolate fettuccine noodles (uncooked)
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Chocolate sauce (such as ice cream topping)   
  • Rum
  • Whipped cream or topping, if desired
    1. Soak some fresh whole strawberries (three or four per person) in rum overnight in the fridge.
    2. The noodles are cooked the same way as regular pasta, but drained and allowed to cool to room temperature.
    3. Remove the soaked strawberries from the rum, and cut them in half.
    4. The noodles become sticky when they cool, so to loosen them, you pour the excess rum over top of them and mix them up.
    5. Place a small amount of noodles on a plate. Put a few rum-soaked strawberry halves on top. Add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. Place a few more strawberries (whole or half) on the heap.
    6. Swirl the chocolate sauce delicately over top.
    7. Whipped cream or topping can be applied, if desired
    8. Place a large whole fresh strawberry on top.

    And there you go! I still get razzed about it from time to time, just because it was such a weird thing to have for dessert.

    Not wanting to plug the brand or anything, but Chocolate Fettuccine noodles are manufactured by Pasta Mama's in Richmond, WA.
