The Tartufissima is the first truffle pasta ever produced in the world. The “Tartufissima Pasta” began in 1990, thanks to the experience and culinary imagination of Beppe, chef and founder of Tartuflanghe.
Two years later the Tartufissima N19 was awarded as “Outstanding new product” at Fancy Food Summer Show of New York City.
This success is due to its special characteristics: the completely hand-made shape which gives an extraordinary texture to the pasta, the high percentage of truffle, the sophisticated and well balanced taste and the great quantity of eggs that enhances the flavour of the truffle.
In 2012 our Tartufissima pasta has been chosen by Oprah Winfrey and included in the “Oprah’s favourite things“, the famous list drawn up by the American anchorwoman for the Christmas festivity.
Ingredients: durum wheat semolina, pasteurized fresh eggs 20%, summer truffle, (Tuber Aestivum Vitt.) 7%, flavor.
It may contain traces of soy.
Chef’s tips: Bring 5 quarts (approx. 2 liters) of water to a boil, adding the salt. Add the pasta and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until
“al dente” or still firm. Melt the butter in a separate saucepan. Drain the pasta and return it to the saucepan.
Combine the pasta and melted butter or olive oil and toss over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add the grated Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
