Truffle Linguine with Tomatoes and Pancetta


A simple pasta dish with tomatoes, pancetta and the basil leaves. The recipe calls for truffle linguine, but you can use other pasta as a substitute. Prosciutto can be used in place of pancetta to give this simple pasta dish a flavour boost.

  • 200 g Truffle linguine©angiesrecipes
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 80 g Pancetta, roughly chopped
  • 1 Shallot, diced
  • 2 Tomatoes, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Some fresh basil leaves
  1. Cook truffle linguine in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet directions, 8-10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile heat a little of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add in chopped pancetta and cook until golden and crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add in diced shallot and stir fry until aromatic. Add in the diced tomatoes, olive oil and pasta. Toss over low heat to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Top with basil leaves.

Looks delicious - truffle and prosciutto? I wonder if I could add truffle oil if I can't find truffle pasta?

Truffle Linguini... Good idea. I can probably make fresh pasta with Truffle shavings mixed in with the dough...

Having fresh tomato with this type of linguini must be incredible. I haven't seen this flavour before. It's been noted for the next time I go to the gourmet shop.

Very beautiful capture of such an appetizing pasta dish.

Ciao for now,

I also question where to get Truffle Linguine. I guess in any fancy specialty shop? I know i could find it in Manhattan, like at Balducci's or Zabar's or someplace like that but where I live I can't even find Perciatelli. If I tried to find this it would be impossible. The recipe looks absolutely delicious though. I would love it.

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 11/8/10 06:24

Kate: I haven't, but I definitely will next time. :-))
4evaRisa: I got them from one local store here in Germany. I guess you might have to look out for them in the specialty stores or online.

Thank you, guys! I am really that this on made it to top 9!
