Truffle Pasta

This Truffle Pasta recipe is a decadent treat for a special dinner. The unmistakably earthy rich flavor of truffle is paired with everything it loves-butter, cheese and perfectly cooked pasta . Black or White truffles work so well with these rich ingredients, because the fat in these ingredients absorbs the truffle flavor and carries it though the whole dish, making a small amount of truffle go further.

  • Serves: 2 servings
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 8 ounces fresh or dry pasta
  • ½ cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • ½ stick/4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 ounce/28 grams fresh black or white truffle OR 3 teaspoons La Rustichella Black or White Truffle Paté
  • fresh chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, salt it generously (1 tablespoon) and then cook the pasta until al dente(usually 1 minute less than the packet suggests).

  2. Meanwhile grate the cheese and set to one side.

  3. Add the butter to a heavy based skillet and let it melt over a low heat. Once the butter has melted grate in about ¾ of the truffle or add all of the truffle paté. Stir well and then remove from the heat. Once the pasta is cooked, reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water and then drain the pasta. Stir the pasta into the butter, along with ¼ cup of the reserved water. Stir gently over a low heat until everything is combined. Add more water if it starts to feel sticky.

  4. Add the cheese and serve immediately with fresh parsley garnish an grated truffle.
