black truffle pasta
this pasta is so delicately gorgeous and creamy. it's a true special-occasion dish - but it only takes about 10 minutes to make and uses only a few ingredients!
this is a perfect dish for a date night at home. not only is it just so special, but you won't be stuck in the kitchen all night!
black truffle pasta (adapted from ina)
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 oz. black truffle butter (most packages are 3 oz. i used this one i found at whole foods)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
8 oz. egg noodles
3 tblspn. chopped fresh chives, plus a bit more for garnish
3 oz. grated parmesan
bring a big pot of salted water to a boil. cook pasta in pot according to package directions.
meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat heavy cream over medium heat until it simmers, then lower to the lowest heat setting. add truffle butter, salt, and pepper. stir until the butter is completely melted and the sauce is silky.
when pasta is finished cooking and al dente, drain and return to hot. add the cream sauce and stir until pasta is completely coated. add in parmesan and stir until well-combined and the cheese melts into the sauce. add chives and stir.
divide into bowls and serve with a sprinkling of chives and black pepper.
enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! have a fabulous weekend, loves! x
