Baked Truffle Pasta Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz (340g) pasta (penne, rigatoni, or your favorite)
  • 2 cups of Dutch Cheeseman Truffle Cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Cook the Pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.

  3. Prepare the Sauce: In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

  4. Make the Roux: Stir in the flour and cook for another minute, stirring constantly, until the mixture is lightly golden.

  5. Add the Cream and Milk: Gradually whisk in the heavy cream and milk. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens, about 5-7 minutes.

  6. Add the Cheese: Remove the saucepan from heat. Stir in the shredded Truffle Cheese, grated Parmesan, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg (if using). Mix until the cheese is fully melted and the sauce is smooth.

  7. Combine Pasta and Sauce: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked pasta and the truffle cheese sauce. Mix until the pasta is evenly coated.

  8. Assemble the Casserole: Transfer the pasta mixture into a greased baking dish. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the top.

  9. Bake: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the sauce is bubbling.

  10. Garnish and Serve: Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.

Enjoy your luxurious Baked Truffle Pasta, a perfect dish for a special dinner or any time you want to treat yourself to something indulgent.
