Linguine with Black Truffles Recipe


Linguine with Black Truffles an exceptional gourmet recipe with the wild, earthy flavor of the truffles.  This wonderful pasta dish would make an excellent first course dish at your next dinner party or special occasion.

The truffle odor is intoxicating!  Truffles are the culinary equivalent of sex.  You love them or you don’t.  You smell them or you don’t.  You need them or you don’t.  Truffles don’t really have much of a ‘taste,” but the smell is so overwhelming that it infuses any meal (and often the refrigerator).  The actual taste of truffles is a little bland and when sliced over food, they are chewy.  It is the smell that keeps you coming back.

In Oregon, where I live, we have our native white and black truffles that are outstanding and not as expensive as the European truffles.  Give them a try!  More about Oregon Truffles.
