It is rather difficult to come by ready-made chocolate pasta, so why not make it yourself? Nigella Lawson has created a recipe for chocolate pasta, caramel and pecans, but you don’t even have to go that sweet with chocolate pasta. I have some things in mind, but sauce is scheduled later. First, some more coloured pasta.
