Most gals yearn for chocolate. Put me in the “yes” category on that one. Romantic dinner for two? The occasion definitely calls for pasta. Combine these two ingredients for a romantic Valentine’s Day and wha-la! Chocolate Pasta with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce.
Chocolate pasta? Say what? Did you do a double take?
Okay, I may have lost it this time. Chocolate with cheese? Why not? It certainly works on cheese boards, so why not in one hot bowl for me and my lover?
I’ve been harboring this package of chocolate pasta for a while now all in anticipation of Valentine’s Day. The moment I laid eyes on it while roaming the eyes of Home Goods (I find so many unexpected finds there!) my synapses snapped.
Chocolate. Spunky cheese. Cream. A few really good ingredients to make a really great dish. My head was in forward motion. My recipe practically wrote itself as I was standing in the gourmet foods aisle.
But then this recipe almost didn’t see the light of day.
