This weeks “Chopped Challenge” mystery basket was an interesting combination of Noodles, Sour Gummy Worms, Chocolate and Dragon Fruit.
One of the items on my “things I want to make list” was dessert pasta so I decided to combine the chocolate into the noodles and make Chocolate Oreo Spaghetti Noodles. I then decided to melt down the sour gummy worms, combine them with dragon fruit and ricotta cheese to make a sauce for the noodles.
The result was a delicious, unique dessert, perfect for an Italian dinner night!
- 3 cups flour (divided)
- 1 cup oreo crumbs
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp sour gummy worms (melted)
- 6 oz ricotta cheese
- 2 oz goat cheese
- 1/2 dragon fruit (peeled and chopped)
- 1 tbsp honey
Begin preparing the chocolate oreo spaghetti by combining the crushed oreos and 2 cups flour.
Next, add the eggs to the flour oreo mixture and combine until the dough forms into a ball. The dough should be slightly sticky. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour, if it’s not sticky enough, add a little water.
Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
In the meantime prepare the sauce by first melting the sour gummy worms.
Total science-experiment look going on!
Take a teaspoon of the melted
science experiment gummy worms and combine with the goat cheese, ricotta cheese, honey and dragon fruit.
Next, head back to the pasta dough and prepare the spaghetti in a pasta machine.
Be sure to have that extra cup of flour handy as the oreos make this dough extra sticky!
Place the noodles into boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until they float to the top. Toss with the Ricotta Dragon Fruit Sauce and serve!
Grab a fork and dig in!
