Chocolate Cheese Macaroni

A relaxing afternoon..Lazing on the couch..Watching food network and watch the pretty and overly expressive (it is nice though) Giada De Laurentis cook with mascarpone cheese, ricotta cheese, pasta and yummy cake laden with chocolate. My stomach rumbles and craves for cheese and chocolate (though I kept reminding myself that I need to work out and lose some fat). Finally something flashed in my occasionally brilliant mind and EUREKA!!

I went into the kitchen and picked exactly 3 ingredients from the pantry. And a delicious Friday night dessert was ready in less than 15 minutes. Lets take a look at how this yummy delicacy is made.

(Serves 2)

Elbow Macaroni - 1 cup
Nutella Chocolate and Hazelnut spread - 2 tbsp
Ricotta cheese - 1/3rd cup


  • Add the elbow macaroni in a pan of boiling water and cool till it is Al-dente. Drain the pasta and transfer it into a bowl.

  • Add 2 tbsp of Nutella and mix well. The Nutella will melt with the heat of the pasta and become a creamy sauce.

  • Finally add the ricotta cheese and mix well.

  • Add chopped walnuts and garnish. Serve it warm or chill it and serve it cold.
  • Enjoy your Chocolate Cheese Macaroni!!

  • You can use any kind of pasta to make this dish.
  • You can alter the amount of Nutella and cheese depending on your taste.
  • Add a pinch of salt and a tsp of ghee or melted butter to the pasta water so that the pasta does not stick together.
  • You can add chopped nuts of your choice.
