What You’ll Need

  • 4 ounces of plain greek yogurt
  • 2.5 ounces of fresh cream
  • 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar
  • 15 grams of gelatin in sheets
  • ½ pound of pureed watermelon pulp
  • Dark chocolate to taste

What You’ll Do

  1. Place two sheets of jelly in two separate bowls of cold water for about 10 minutes
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of fresh cream in the microwave for about 15 seconds
  3. Take one of your jelly sheets and squeeze out excess water. Then place the gelatin in the bowl with the heated cream and allow to dissolve
  4. Pour in the rest of your cream into a separate bowl and mix in the powdered sugar
  5. Add in your mixed greek yogurt and then add the gelatin and warm cream to the bowl as well
  6. Mix well until fully combined
  7. Pour about ¼ of the mixture into each cup and allow to harden in the fridge for about 30 minutes
  8. Blend your yogurt well in a blender and strain out all of the seeds before continuing
  9. Take 2 tablespoons of your pureed watermelon and transfer to a small bowl
  10. Heat your 2 tablespoons of watermelon in the microwave for several seconds
  11. Add your other gelatin sheet (currently sitting in water) to the watermelon puree after having squeezed out any extra water from gelatin
  12. After combining completely, mix in the rest of your watermelon puree
  13. Once your yogurt is done resting in the fridge, remove it and add a layer of the watermelon to the glasses. This layer should be the same amount as the yogurt layer.
  14. Place the glasses in the fridge again for another 30 minutes
  15. Repeat the steps to create enough material to repeat the steps once again
  16. After your glasses have hardened in the fridge, repeat the same steps to make two more layers. Your final product should be four layers deep, although this is entirely up to your preference!
  17. Once all of it has hardened in the fridge, decorate the top of your top layer with chocolate chips, making them appear as if they were watermelon seeds.

Pappardelle was first mentioned in writing at the end of the 13th century and became so famous in the Tuscan region that the writer Bocaccio, one of the three fathers of the modern Italian language, mentioned the dish in his famous work The Decameron. But he’s not the only writer to mention the pasta; several Renaissance writers sang the praises of pappardelle in their writing.
