The Most Simple Truffled Fettuccine


If you are desperate for a last minute holiday dish- this is it!


This is essentially cheesy buttered noodles. The addition of truffle oil makes it a grown-up dish fit for a holiday gathering.  I have made several versions of this dish and they are all delicious but none quite as simple as this one. By simple I mean four ingredients and it comes together in about a minute after the pasta is done.


Very high indulgence to effort ratio going on.  Decadent, easy and truffles? Looks like Santa came early…


You’ll need:

  • 1 pound fettuccine egg pasta- the kind that is sold in little clusters
  • 5 cup grated parmesan cheese plus extra for topping
  • 1/3 cup black truffle oil plus extra for garnish
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt/pep
  • Pasta water

To Make:

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions (in salted water). Reserve a little of the pasta water (you’ll only need a few tablespoons). Drain pasta.
  2. Toss pasta with oil, butter, and parmesan. Seasons with salt/pep to taste. Add pasta water if it needs to loosen up a bit. Garnish with a drizzle of extra truffle oil, more parmesan and serve.
