An easy recipe with Tuber Aestivum Extra-class:
Pasta with Summer truffles
You can try your shaved truffles over warm pasta. The pleasing aroma will make you fall in love with this magnificent gift from nature.
- 1 oz fresh summer truffles
- 6 oz spaghetti (or any other pasta)
- Three tablespoons unsalted butter
- Good quality Parmesan cheese, coarsely grated (optional)
- salt to taste
Cook pasta in a large pot of salted water according to the directions on the package. When you cook the pasta to the ‘al dente’ stage, you can drain it and reserve a little cooking water (about four tablespoons or so). Return the pasta to the cooking pot along with the reserved pasta water. Heat the pot over medium, then add the butter and toss until most of the water has been absorbed and the pasta is well-coated with the butter. The butter and starchy pasta water should form a loose sauce (where you can add salsa tartufata).
Once the pasta is ready, add the parmesan cheese and the sliced truffles on top and enjoy!
