Four Mushroom and Truffle Pasta

It can’t get more earthy delicious than this! Four Mushroom and Truffle Pasta is a type of pasta dish prepared with fettucine served with a cream sauce infused with truffles and a variety of mushrooms like button, portobello, shiitake and porcini.


This perhaps is the best pasta I made to date, definitely one of my top favourites becuase it has several good ingredients that I really like on one plate. The earthy and meaty mushrooms, the pungent salty cheese, the cream, the pasta and lastly to top it all off, some summer truffles. I had tried truffles many times before in restaurants but never had cooked with it, luckily recently truffles started to be available on our local supermarkets and not just specialty stores anymore, making it more accessible to the public. Several days ago, when my daughter went out with her friends she surprised me with a Giuliano Tartufi Summer Truffle Slices which she grabbed from the supermarket, she knew I love to use them on my recipes but I find it pricey, a 50g small bottle costs more than $50.00 so never bought one, my daughter saw the stingy part of me so she decided to buy it for me. After that I do once in a while crave for this expensive morsel so since then I kept a small stash at home ready to fire it up when needed.

Our recipe for today was one of the vehicles of that cravings, a really simple yet delicious pasta dish that focuses on the earthiness of the mushrooms and truffles, it’s definitely one of the most addictive concoctions I ever made.

  1. That sounds and looks truly a gourmet pasta dish!

  2. This looks and sounds splendid! I love that you used mixed mushrooms (particularly dried porcini) for an extra compound flavour. Plus the addition of real truffles (Even from the jar) – that’s a gourmet dish!

    Beautiful. I love using dried mushrooms along with fresh. They’re just so different!

    Yummmmm!!! Fresh mushrooms!!!

  5. If I had a truffle, this would be on the dinner table tonight! I love the combination of mushrooms, and I think it will still work if I use either my truffle powder or truffle salt! Fantastic recipe, Raymund!

  6. This is spectacular! Love mushrooms with pasta and cream, and this is one of the best version I’ve seen. Thanks.
