Recipes: Chili Chocolate Fettucine with Raspberry Sauce

Chili Chocolate Fettucine
            with Raspberry Sauce
Prep Time: 1 hour  Cook Time: 15 min.  Serves 6-8

Chocolate Fettucine
2 cups Semolina
1/4 cup Ghirardelli baking cocoa
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
2 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil

Chili Chocolate Sauce
12 ounces Ghirardelli semisweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons dried chili peppers, crushed

Raspberry Sauce
2 pints raspberries
1/2 lemon

1/4 cup confectioner's sugar

Sift together Semolina, Ghirardelli baking cocoa, and confectioner's sugar. It is important to get the dry ingredients thoroughly mixed. Stir in eggs and milk until dough is soft but not sticky. Add flour if dough is too sticky. Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 20 minutes

Let the Roma Electric Pasta Machine do all the work from here. Knead the dough by flattening it into a bowl of flour and then feeding it into the machine. Fold it over and feed it back through a few times. Feed the dough sheet into the machine, increasing the setting each time, until the dough is your desired thickness. For chocolate dough, I only feed it through until setting five. Lay out your sheets until you've used all of your dough, and begin feeding the sheets into the fettucine cutter. String the fettucine onto the pasta drying rack to ensure your noodles don't stick together. Cook in a pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, then strain and toss with Canaan Fair Trade Chili Pepper Infused Olive Oil rather than rinsing with cold water.

In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together butter, Ghirardelli semisweet chocolate, and crushed chilis until melted. Pour in heavy whipping cream, stirring rapidly until thoroughly mixed and then immediately remove from heat.

Pour two pints of raspberries, a half of a lemon (leave the peel on), and confectioner's sugar into the Roma Sauce Maker with a Berry Screen. Strain until all of the ingredients have processed through the sauce maker.

Drizzle (a little goes a long way with these rich sauces) the chocolate fettucine with chili chocolate sauce and raspberry sauce and 'bellisimo!'
