This panna cotta recipe was inspired by a product I received to review but all opinions expressed here are my own.
I am a big fan of dessert and sometimes the simplest flavors are the ones I enjoy most. Vanilla sometimes gets pushed aside in favor of more complicated flavors but when you find a recipe with only a few ingredients, the mellow taste of vanilla really stands out. I always make sure to buy REAL vanilla extract as opposed to the artificially flavored stuff you can find sometimes in the grocery store. There really is a significant difference in flavor! When I can find it I will buy organic vanilla extract and if that is your preference you can find it at Nielsen Massey. They also offer a vanilla bean PASTE and if you have never tried this you are seriously missing out. It is slightly thicker (but still pourable) compared to vanilla extract and loaded with actual vanilla pod seeds.
You get more vanilla flavor with this paste and you also get the 'look' of real vanilla. Look at a high quality vanilla bean icecream and you will see those tiny seeds in it. That is the look you will get using this vanilla bean paste and the flavor is out of this world! In order to spotlight the vanilla I chose this panna cotta recipe that has only a few ingredients and is very simple to make.

I hope you enjoy this panna cotta and if you decide to make it let me know how it turns out!
