Dark Chocolate Carbonara with Warm Honey Yogurt: Who Says You Can't Have Pasta for Dessert?

Ever heard of chocolate noodles? Our friend from Canada gifted us with a pack of , which we turned into a dessert pasta dish—Dark Chocolate Carbonara with Warm Honey Yogurt.

To mimic the creamy ham-and-mushroom-filled sauce of the usual savory carbonara, we used a warm honey-yogurt sauce instead by combining Greek yogurt, cream, honey, salt, and grated dark chocolate. For this recipe, we topped it off with some cubed fresh strawberries, but you can use any fruit you prefer. Mangoes or bananas would be lovely as well. Or how about a fruit medley?

I must be upfront about this: despite having copious amounts dark chocolate infused into the pasta dough, you can only taste a hint of it in the cooked linguine. This is where the sauce comes in. The tanginess and acidity from the yogurt accentuates the dark chocolate flavor, making it a great choice of sauce for chocolate pasta. A combination of Mascarpone and honey is also a good option, but Greek yogurt carries a more pronounced sharpness to it.

      market! market! has, rizal dairy farms makes it.

    • Katrina says:

      Rizal Dairy Farms has a stall at Salcedo Market, too. Rustan’s also sells imported Greek yogurt at predictably ridiculous prices.

      In a pinch, you can also strain regular yogurt through a cheesecloth or coffee filter over a bowl overnight to strain out the water.
