Second Story: Culinary Creations III

Tagliarelle with Truffle Butter

A couple weeks ago, Emma made one of the most amazingly delicious pastas dishes I have ever had, thanks to Ina Garten! I highly recommend everyone goes home and makes this dish tonight. Not only is it dripping with flavor, literally, it is also one of the easiest meals to make. Don't question anything and definitely don't look at the nutrition facts. Just make it, eat it, and enjoy it. Then tomorrow, go run six miles.

Add 1 tablespoon salt to a large pot of water and bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, in a large (12-inch) saute pan, heat the cream over medium heat until it comes to a simmer. Add the truffle butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper, lower the heat to very low, and swirl thebutter until it melts. Keep warm over very low heat.
Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes, exactly. (If you're not using Cipriani pasta, follow the directions on the package.) When the pasta is cooked, reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta. Add the drained pasta to the saute pan and toss it with the truffle-cream mixture. As the pasta absorbs the sauce, add as much of the reserved cooking water, as necessary, to keep the pasta very creamy.
Serve the pasta in shallow bowls and garnish each serving with a generous sprinkling of chives and shaved Parmesan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve at once.
