Make your own truffle pasta
Don’t worry about the carbs! Pasta by any other name is still one of the simplest—and quickest—dishes to whip up. And, if prepared well, it can be one of the most delightful and comforting meals.
This pasta dish is simple to do yet the use of truffle oil makes it extra decadent. It offers a flavorful combination of truffle oil, parmesan cheese, portobello and oyster mushrooms.
The addition of all-purpose cream gives the mixture a richer and fuller taste, while the spinach makes it healthy and filling.
“By simply adding a few ingredients, this pasta dish turns into a special treat that can be prepared in a jiffy,” says chef Val Campilla of Hotel Rembrandt.
“Aside from fettuccine or fusilli, you can use any pasta you prefer, such as angel’s hair, spaghetti or rigatoni.”
Tartufo oil is available in major supermarkets and specialty stores.
