We had to come up with some pasta recipes for our friends at Drop. Naturally they are mostly savoury and so being that I am a dessert queen, we had to throw a dessert pasta recipe into the mix. And this is it! OMG.

I did a bit of research on pasta dessert recipes. I had made a chocolate ravioli in the past and my son who lived in Italy for 2 years had made a Nutella gnocchi for us in the past (which will show up on here sooner or later!) But I wanted something simple and family friendly. My mum used to cook short pasta for us in the same way as rice pudding and I loved it as a child.

I was enchanted to find a paragraph written by a French travel writer in the early 1700's about a pasta dish served in Rome. (Who knew there were travel writers back then??)

'The macaroni had been cooked in almond milk and sugar, and perfumed with ambergris, the finest ground cinnamon, genuine Corinth currants, pistachios from the Levant, lemon zest, the most delicate little salami, and garnished with marzapane….”

Well I left the ambergris and salami out of this one, and there is no 'marzapane' either, but the rest was pretty delicious. We are all in love with this recipe and it may show up elsewhere as I am sure you will find, it is a goodie. Love it when a plan comes together!
