  • 8 oz pasta
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 stick salted butter
  • 1 oz fresh black truffle
  • fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring a large pan of water to the boil, salt it generously (1 tbsp) and then cook the pasta until al dente. (Usually 1 minute less than the packet suggests)
  • Meanwhile grate the parmesan and set to one side.
  • Add the butter to a heavy based skillet and let it melt over a low heat.
  • Once the butter has melted grate in about 3/4 of the black truffle.
  • Stir well and then remove from the heat.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water and then drain the pasta.
  • Stir the pasta into the butter, along with 1/4 cup of the reserved water. Stir gently over a low heat until everything is combined. Add more water if it starts to feel sticky.
  • Add the parmesan and serve immediately with fresh parsley garnish and more black truffle.
