Play Freerice and feed the hungry

By Kate Miller


I can't tell you enough how much my kids love pasta. When I say “love”, I really mean they want pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And, kids being kids, they always ask for the impossible – the kids want pasta in their desserts!


So, I took an old-fashioned English pudding recipe and bump it up with cocoa, a handful of raisins and chopped nuts. The kids love it; it's insanely delicious even my husband and mother-in-law are now big fans of chocolate pasta pudding.


So, what do you say? Let's have pasta for dessert!

Chocolate Pasta Pudding Recipe

(serves 4 to 6)



125 grams pasta shells

600 ml plus 3 tablespoons low-fat milk

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 tablespoons brown sugar

½ cup raisins

¼ cup chopped nuts

2 eggs, separated

125 grams granulated sugar


How to make pasta pudding

Place pasta shells and 600 ml milk in a saucepan, bring to a boil.


Lower heat and let the pasta simmer for about 18 to 20 minutes, stirring constantly.


In a bowl, combine cocoa powder with 3 tablespoons milk and brown sugar. Mix well to form a smooth paste.


Next, stir the chocolate paste into pasta shells, stirring until pasta/milk mixture starts to boil.


Add egg yolks and half of the granulated sugar. Stir in raisins and chopped nuts.


Pour mixture into a pie dish.


Whisk egg whites with remaining granulated sugar until stiff; place meringue into an icing bag and then pipe a trellis pattern over the pasta shells.


Bake chocolate shell pudding in the center of a 300°F oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the meringue is light golden. Serve warm or cold with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Super yummy!
