Pasta with truffle butter

I’ve seen a recipe from the Barefoot Contessa for pasta with truffle butter and I’ve been itching to try it.  The truffle butter isn’t terribly expensive and you can freeze it.  She uses heavy cream with the butter to make a sauce.  I didn’t think I needed the extra calories so I just cut out the cream.  My daughter loves pasta with butter and Parmesan cheese – this is just a slightly more grown up version.

Pasta with truffle butter

  • pasta of your choice (I used fettucini)
  • 1 oz truffle butter per serving
  • Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Put truffle butter in your dish, add drained pasta and top with grated Parmesan cheese.

Just the thing after an afternoon on the golf course!

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
