Perfect Pasta Chipotle Fettuccine Recipes

Perfect Pasta Chipotle Fettuccine Recipes

Since launching our pasta, I wanted to share some easy-to-make pasta recipes. Spice things up a bit with these two chipotle fettuccine recipes using our Chipotle Fettuccine. Even if you aren’t a person who likes spicy food, these recipes offer a medium level of spice that is both flavorful and tasteful. 

With a mouthful of smoky flavors and a bit of spice, our Chipotle Fettuccine pairs wonderfully with grilled foods and red wine. Other flavors this pasta pairs well with are cilantro, lime, cumin, garlic, paprika, dark Chocolate, chicken, beef and pork. So, don’t be afraid to mix it up!

And when you do, mix it up with our Rio Grande Roasted Garlic sauce & Jalapeno Olive Oil for a true taste of the Southwest.

Make your dinner’s delicious with these perfect pasta recipe ideas using our Colorado artisan pasta from Wendi’s Good Things Market.

Gosar Bavarian Chipotle Pasta

This recipe takes roughly 15 minutes to prepare and cook. This recipe is for a single serving, so just add accordingly for number of servings. For this recipe we are using a local meat and sausage company, Gosar Natural Foods. Located in Monte Vista — we are practically neighbors — they produce fine, European artisan sausage. The flavorful sausage makes a great alternative to chicken. 

Here’s what you need

  • 1 ounce olive oil
  • 1 Gosar Bavarian sausage link, cut in 6 bias slices
  • 5 (21/25 shrimp), deveined, shelled and butterflied
  • 4 ounces heavy cream
  • 3 ounces Chipotle sauce, recipe below
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 9 ounces cooked penne pasta
  • 2 ounces Parmesan, grated
  • 1 tablespoon diced tomato
  • 1 tablespoon diced scallion

Although our pasta has enough flavor to stand on its own, if you’d like add the Chipotle sauce:

  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ½ ounce Dijon mustard
  • 2 ounces chipotle paste
  • ½ ounce red chili flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Here’s what to do:

  • Using a saute pan, add olive oil and Gosar Bavarian sausage over high heat. 
  • Sear links until browned. 
  • Add in the shrimp and cook until pink. Lower to medium heat. 
  • Then add cream, chipotle sauce, salt and pepper. 
  • Add in cooked Wendi’s Good Things Market Chipotle Fettuccine pasta along with the cheese. 
  • Toss to combine.
  • Serve in desired bowl and garnish with diced tomato, scallions and parmesan cheese.
  • For the chipotle sauce, combine all ingredients in blender and puree.
  • Enjoy!
