Bring a large pot of water to the boil, then generously salt. Add the pasta & cook for 2-3 minutes (the pasta will still be undercooked but don't worry we will cook it again later). Drain & rinse under cold water until cooled.
Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat & sauté shallots for 3-4 minutes, until softened. Add garlic & continue to sauté for 30 seconds. Add White wine and reduce by three quarters. 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
