Truffle cream pasta


500g spaghetti of your choice

500ml all purpose or cooking cream

1 head garlic, minced

1 chicken broth cube

2 cups sauteed assorted mushrooms or crispy bacon (optional)

2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

truffle oil (quantity depends on the brand you are using)


  1. Start boiling your water to cook your pasta before you start with your sauce. Cook the noodles until just al dente in salted water. The pasta should be ready to toss in the sauce as soon as it’s done if you put it in the pot right before you start making the  sauce (8-10 mins).cooking spaghetti
