Prep Time2 mins
Cook Time8 mins
Total Time10 mins
- 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.
