Pasta with strawberries
Has anyone ever made/eaten this? I've seen it on some menus and the internet is full of recipes for it. Here is one: http://nymag.com/restaurants/recipes/...
I've always been curious about this dish but have never ordered it or ventured to make it. Thanks.
On a similar note, I have done risotto with strawberries and strawberry/chicken risotto as well as a peach risotto. If you step back, pasta is a flour base so how different conceptually is it from using strawberries with a traditonal pie crust or biscuit? Same family tree, just several branches further away.
Another riff is making a 'chocolate' pasta and then serving it with fudge sauce and ice cream.
I've never eaten it, but it sounds like it could definitely work. Strawberries and balsamic certainly go together. I would expect it to be on the sweeter side, but that's never bothered me before in a tomato sauce. With the acidity from the vinegar, it sounds like a bright but balanced dish.
If you do get around to making it please post your experience! I would love to hear how it turned out.
