Truffle Spaghetti – Spaghetti al Tartufo


Truffles, in particular White Truffles, are one of the most expensive food worldwide.

Luckily I live so close to Alba, Piedmont, the motherland of White Truffle.

Here a simple recipe to make your Spaghetti with White Truffle, very easy for you.





Ingredients: (4 portions)

30-50 grams of Truffles

500 grams of Spaghetti

two spoons of Butter

Four Eggs

Parsley & Garlic mix

Marine Salt

grated Parmesan Cheese if you like on the top…





melt the butter in a fry-pan











add a spoon of Parsley & Garlic Mix









let fry for two minutes










add a pinch of Marine Salt










a bunch of Marine Salt to cook the Spaghetti, later on…










the base is ready!










go to split yolk and white of the Eggs, we will use the yolk only



















let’s go to cook the Spaghetti…Al Dente!










drop the Spaghetti in to the boiling water, set them down using a fork (not the hand alike me…)









with a sharp an tiny blade we slice the truffle










chopping it in small pieces then!










AlDente Spaghetti should be perfect…look the followings pictures, I cut the Spaghetti for you and you can see the white spot inside: it has to cook more…








after two minutes I check again cutting another Spaghetti: still the white spot in the core: it has still to cook….








after two minutes look : no more white spot! it is perfectly Al Dente!!!

hurry up, go for the colander…








after dripped the water from the Spaghetti, let’s drop them in to the fry-pan and heat the butter for a while…stir everything very well!








take off fro the fire and add the four Egg-Yolks, mix immediately with the Spaghetti









the use of wooden tools is strongly suggested










drop on the top the chopped Truffles….you can add Parmesan Cheese if you like, and it is done! Simple and effective!
