Summary

Sticky Hot Pasta gives us all the chance to re-think why our pastas need be covered just in red or white sauces. Also shows what nature has to offer while knocking some conventional eaters off of their tailgates. I didn’t include but try some hearty and dry cheese … Honey & Cheese Pasta works too!

Instructions

  1. 1Boil the gourmet pasta in accordance with instructions. Usually in 8 to 10 cups of water, moderately salted. Cook it until it tastes done but is not too soft.
  2. 2While waiting, combine honey and olive oil until well mixed and flavor of honey stays strong. Salt and pepper a little.
  3. 3Drain and SHOCK the pasta. Which means run it under cool water for about 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Gourmet or hand-made pastas cook quickly and continue to cook after being drained.
  4. 4Let the pasta continue to cool for about 15 or so minutes. (These pastas change their flavors a bit as they cool. Chipotle pasta is smoky hot and you want to be sure how this will taste for flavoring.
  5. 5Pour the honey oil over the pasta and mix gently but completely.
  6. 6Add in the herbs.
  7. 7Salt and pepper to your desire.
  8. 8Serve with any KC Masterpiece grilled meat or hearty fish.
