Nutella Lasagna and 5 Other Italian Classics Remade with Nutella
Cannoli. The simplest way to add some Nutella into your dessert! Just mix some into the ricotta filling before piping into the cannoli shells.
Lasagna. Created by Robicelli’s bakery in Brooklyn, Nutella lasagna is a real thing and totally doable in your own kitchen. Layer fresh lasagna noodles with cannoli cream, Nutella chocolate sauce, marshmallows, and toasted hazelnuts for the dessert mash-up you never knew you needed.
Pasta Sauce. Toss cooked pasta with a simple Nutella-based chocolate sauce and serve with mixed berries for a fun take on the classic savory pasta dish. Top with sifted confectioners sugar instead of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Pizza. A sweet take on pizza that’s easy to make. Slice a baked pizza dough round through the middle and spread the cut sides with a chocolate-chip-studded ricotta mixture, then put them back together to form a Nutella-pizza sandwich.

Ravioli. Make Nutella ravioli two different ways: stuff fresh pasta dough with a Nutella-ricotta mixture or mix some Nutella and cocoa powder into fresh pasta dough. Go Nutella crazy and stuff the Nutella pasta dough with the Nutella-ricotta mixture. Toss both versions in a sugary brown butter sauce. You’re welcome.
Tiramisù. Mix Nutella into mascarpone before layering with espresso-soaked lady fingers for an easy upgrade to the delicious classic Italian dessert.
