Truffle Orechiette

This easy recipe is based on our popular Orechiette Pasta kit, which includes a wonderful tartufata. Sometimes called a truffle sauce or truffle pesto, tartufata is a blend of real black truffle and packed with a robust flavor that does almost all the work for you. You literally could cook your pasta and mix in the tartufata for a delicious, decadent truffle dish. Please note, our tartufata includes pistachios.

We like to add a few extras, when possible. Here's our process for making a phenomenal truffle pasta.

  1. In lightly salted water, boil the pasta until al dente (typically, less than 10 mins).

  2. Drain and return cooked pasta to the empty pot on low heat.

  3. Gently stir in tartufata - a couple heaping tablespoons per serving is a good amount. If you’re making the entire bag of pasta (about 2 servings), then 4 tablespoons-ish of tartufata. It’s kind of like a “dash” of wine - add as much as you like!

  4. Allow a few minutes to warm everything.

    If you have fresh black truffle you’re shaving into the dish, they taste best when warmed up a little, so add those when stirring in the tartufata.

  5. Plate and top with grated parmesan, fresh pepper and our Balinese Truffle Salt to taste (it won’t need much), and perhaps a little fresh basil.

It’s really that easy. But, it oh so unbelievably good.
