Tagliatelle Ai Funghi E Tartufo (Mushrooms And Truffle)

This is a simple dish that originates from Florence: tagliatelle ai funghi e tartufo, which translates to tagliatelle with mushrooms and truffle. It traditionally stars Porcini, a prized flavorful mushroom in Italy, but I think this is a good opportunity to use whatever great mushrooms you can find since they're all so seasonal. Shiitake, trumpet, hen of the woods - refer to our mushroom guide for more examples of great options.

The real kicker here is the truffle. It's an unmistakable flavor, and a delicacy in Italian cuisine. We have fantastic truffles from northern Italy for sale here on the site, and that's what I used in this recipe.

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and season water generously with salt. Add pasta, and cook 1 minute less than directed on package, about 8 minutes. Reserve at least 3/4 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add the olive oil and wait 30 seconds for it to heat up. Add the mushrooms to the pan in an even layer along with the salt and thyme, tossing once to coat in the oil. Stir occasionally – the mushrooms will first release water, and once the water has evaporated, they will begin to brown after about 5 minutes. Once the mushrooms have browned, about 3-5 minutes longer, add the garlic and cook for about 1 more minute, stirring often, until fragrant but not burnt. Add the white wine and stir until reduced by about half, about 2 minutes. Remove the thyme.
  3. Turn the heat off. Add the pasta directly to the pan. Top with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and the reserved 3/4 cup of pasta water. Toss everything together until it creates a silky sauce, adding more pasta water if necessary. Add the fresh parsley, and toss to combine.
  4. Serve on 2 to 3 plates, topping each one with a few slices of truffle. Serve immediately.
