Decadence in the evening: Truffle mushroom pasta

16 Feb

Having been emboldened to make more use of our truffle oil following our truffle scrambled eggs life lesson, and inspired to recreate an amazing dish at 500 in Archway, Man Woman gave this a shot. It took ten minutes.

I’m not lying. It was good.

Truffle mushroom pasta

  • Fresh egg pasta for 2
  • 150g oyster mushroom
  • 150g chestnut mushroom (or any mix of nice mushrooms)
  • 1 small shallot, finely sliced
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 3 TBSP truffle oil
  • Parmesan grated

Cook onion and butter in 1 TBSP of butter. Once largely cooked, add the extra butter.

Meanwhile cook pasta. Once cooked, drain and add to the mushroom mix.

In bowls, drizzle truffle oil and grate parmesan over the pasta.

Estimated cost: £3.50

Musical accompaniment: Billy Bragg & Wilco, Mermaid Avenue Vol. 1
