Truffle mushrooms

Truffles are special mushrooms that grow underground. They’re hard to find, which makes them rare and expensive. Truffle pasta is any pasta dish that uses truffles or truffle oil or sauce to add a unique, fancy flavor.

People love truffles because they make food taste very special. There are different types of truffles, like black truffles and white truffles. Both types are used in cooking but have slightly different flavors.

Instructions
 

Preparing the Pasta

  • Fill a big pot with water. Add some salt.

  • Add the chopped garlic and cook it until it smells good (about 1 minute).
  • Pour in the heavy cream and let it bubble gently for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the Parmesan cheese and stir until it melts.

Combining and Finishing

  • When the pasta is done, save 1/2 cup of the pasta water before you drain it.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the pan with the sauce.
  • Pour in the truffle oil.If you have shaved truffle add it now for extra flavor. Mix everything well.
  • If the sauce is too thick, add a little of the pasta water you saved.
  • Put the pasta on plates. Sprinkle some extra Parmesan cheese on top if you want.
  • Add some chopped parsley for color.

Notes

TIPS 
Here are some ways to change up your truffle pasta:
  • If you can’t find truffle oil, you can use mushroom-flavored olive oil instead.
  • You can use any kind of pasta you like. Spaghetti, fettuccine, or penne all work great!
  • For a lighter version, use milk instead of cream.
  • Add some cooked peas or spinach for extra veggies.
  • Try different cheeses like Pecorino Romano or Grana Padano instead of Parmesan.

Storage and Reheating of Truffle Pasta

If you have leftovers (although we doubt you will!), here’s how to store and reheat them:

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • To reheat, add a splash of water or milk and warm it gently in a pan on the stove.
  • Stir often while reheating to keep the sauce smooth.
  • Avoid using the microwave as it can make the pasta tough.
