Ingredients

Truffle Oil

Truffle oil is made two ways. One is by simply infusing truffles and oil. The other way is by using an aromatic compound like 2,4-dithiapentane, which is found in a variation of truffles.

It is extremely important to choose the right truffle oil, as truffle oil is so strong it tends to be the primary flavour of the meal. From my experience when it comes to using truffle oil I always opt for white truffle oil, it tends to taste better.

If you can’t find white truffle oil in your supermarket try this one.

Orzo Pasta

Orzo is a type pasta that is shaped like long grained rice. You tend to find this in either the pasta or rice section of the supermarket. Yes… it seems to be a bit odd putting pasta in the rice section but I have seen it! Orzo also may be called risoni or pasta rice.

Can’t Find Orzo?

If you can’t find orzo in your supermarket opt for another short grain pasta. The texture will definitely not be the same however your truffle oil pasta will still taste amazing! Try either Cavatappi, Chiocciole or Macaroni.

Instructions

Add vegetable stock and reduce by half. Add cream, truffle oil & peas. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the pasta & simmer for 3-4 minutes, mixing regularly until the pasta is al dente. Add parmesan & mix, then reduce to your desired consistency (this may take 0 to a few minutes). Season to taste with salt & truffle oil.
  • Serve fresh from the pot with a sprinkle of panko crumbs & herbs
