Three influential Hispanic food bloggers in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, to create new and unique pasta recipes with a Latin twist.
BANNOCKBURN, Ill., - These recipes are a great way to put a new spin on traditional pasta dishes that are perfect to enjoy with family and friends for the holidays. Laura Muller of Las Recetas de Laura, Nicole Presley from Presley's Pantry, and Alejandra Ramos of Always Order Dessert, were each selected as Barilla brand ambassadors to create custom Latin-inspired pasta recipes that are quick, easy, and represent a celebration of their unique Hispanic identities.
Spaghetti with pecan chipotle sauce
1 box Barilla® Spaghetti -1 ½ cup peeled pecan
1 ½ cup heavy cream
½ cup cream skim milk
½ cup cream cheese
6 Chipotle chili
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove
¼ cup water
2 Pinches of salt
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
½ Onion diced
Once it is all mixed, add the chipotle chilies, one by one. I used three chipotles, but maybe you like it less spicy so add one chili at the time, tasting after each one is added for the desired flavor.
Once the mixture is ready, put it in a saucepan over low heat, do not boil, only slowly warm it. Once it is hot, add the cooked pasta and mix well. Keep it on a while on low heat while you prepare the onion with chipotle.
Cut half the onion in small squares (chop) as well as three chipotle chilies and place it in a pan with ¼ cup water. Cook the onion along with the chipotle. Stir until onions change color and add salt to taste.
Once your pasta is mixed in well with the sauce, place it in a container and add the chipotle on top along with the sautéed onions, some parsley and some parmesan cheese. (SOURCE: HispanicPRWire)
