Ingredients
  

  • 1/3 medium sized onion chopped
  • 3 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 tbsps black truffle sauce Giuliano Tartufi Salsa Tartufata is the best!
  • 1/2 cup cooking cream
  • 3/4 tbsp purpose flour
  • 2 tbsps avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Lower the heat, add the cooking cream, and gently whisk in the flour. This step is optional if you like your pasta sauce less thick. If you'd like a beautiful truffle roux, add the flour.
  • Once the sauce has turned thicker, add in your pasta and mix through until the pasta is fully covered in sauce.
  • Serve with grated parmesan and enjoy!
