Pappardelle with melting white truffle cream

06/16/2020

Pasta, Yes, but ... Pappardelles and so much to do, with TRINACRIA BLANCHE truffle flakes, a classic, a sure bet ...

INGREDIENTS: 2 people (20mn)

- Pappardelle "De Cecco" pasta (5 or 6 nests)

- Isigny fresh cream (5 tablespoons)

- Colza or sunflower oil (2-3 tablespoons)

- Arugula salad (decoration or more)

- Cherry tomatoes (decoration or more)

- WHITE TRINACRIA truffle flakes (2 or 3 rounded teaspoons)

- 2 cl of white or Rosé wine

- Parmesan pieces

- Salt


PREPARATION:

  1. In a saucepan, boil water with a pinch of salt.
  2. When boiling, throw in the 5 nests of Pappardelle pasta in a lower to medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes.
  3. In a small frying pan, heat the oil and cream over low heat for 3 minutes. Add the white Trinacria truffle flakes (2-3 tsp) still over low heat for another 2 or 3 minutes. Taste and salt at your convenience. Reserve in a gravy boat so that the truffle infuses for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the white wine into the pan with the traces of truffle sauce and over low heat, let the alcohol evaporate and reduce. After 4 minutes, taste and if it is neither winey nor too acidic, pour everything into the truffle sauce and mix.
  5. Check that the pasta is cooked al dente (cut a dough and if its slice still shows white, cook a little longer). As soon as it is Al dente, drain the pasta and always leave a little cooking water in the saucepan (3 TBS ). Return the pasta to the pan with a dash of oil so that they do not stick together.
  6. Arrange the plates with the rose-shaped Pappardelle (see photo).
  7. Arrange the sauce as you like, some Parmiggiano shavings and decorate with a few salad leaves and tomatoes.
  8. Sprinkle with a few more flakes as a final touch.
