Fettuccine with chocolate and bacon

Fettuccine with chocolate and bacon

Some years ago, when we were still Dream Satellite subscribers and loyal fans of Discovery’s Travel and Living Channel, I saw David Rocco cook a pasta dish with chocolate sauce called penne al cioccolato. I grimaced as I watched him do it because I thought it was utterly disgusting.

Ingredients

  • 100 g. of fettuccine, cooked al dente in salted water
  • 1 tbsp. of olive oil
  • 100 g. of belly bacon, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 c. of dark chocolate morsels (if using a chocolate bar, chop finely before measuring)
  • 1/4 c. of bread crumbs (I used panko)
  • a pinch of cayenne powder
  • salt, to taste
  • chopped parsley, to garnish (optional)
