Tagliarelle/Pappardelle with White Truffle Butter

Tagliarelle pasta is extra thin pasta which usually cooks in about 3 min and if it is Pappardelle, a slightly wider noodles, it takes about 4 min.
I initially got the Tagliarelle (which you can see in the pic below) but the final dish has pappardelle.Any guesses why? I over cooked and it was no longer the ribbons that I was dreaming about.It was a big lump and it could no longer be called pasta, definitely not the gourmet dish that I was venturing to make.It was more or less like a dough.So I used up the pappardelle that I had with me.

I put the pasta in the water and I totally forgot as one of my friends called after quite a long time, a very long time and I did not realize that this pasta is so delicate.So be extra careful and when the directions say 3 min..that is EXACTLY 3 min.And not to mention a box of these cost about 8 bucks.So yes, for pasta that is a lot of money but it is so worth it.
And for the white truffle butter, you can get in the refrigerated section along with milk and juices of any gourmet food stores like Whole Foods or Fresh Market.
This is one of the best pastas I have ever eaten!

Recipe:Ina Garten
1 box of Tagliarelle or Pappardelle pasta(I have used Cipriani)
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
3 oz White Truffle Butter
3 tbsps Fresh Chopped Chives
3 oz Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Salt + 1tbsp for boiling pasta
1/2 tsp Pepper
  • Bring a large pot of water with a tablespoon of salt to a boil
  • Heat cream in a pan until it comes to a simmer.Add truffle butter, salt and pepper and stir it until the butter melts
  • Add the pasta and cook for 3 min or as per the directions on the box
  • Drain the pasta after reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water
  • Toss the pasta in the pan with the truffle butter sauce
  • Add just enough water to the pasta just to make the pasta creamy
  • Garnish with chives and parmesan cheese

Note:You could add a half cup of mushrooms which you can saute and add to the truffle butter sauce

Hugs,
Shri
