Fuži (pasta fusi) with truffles

Fuži (pasta fusi) with truffles
  • 500 g of fusi (pasta)
  • pepper
  • Piran salt
  • parmigiano cheese
  • olive oil
  • yolk
  • cream
  • 25 g of butter
  • 80 g of truffles


Boil the water for the fusi and add a bit of olive oil, then proceed to cook them. Rinse the cooked fusi with warm water and add a spoon of olive oil and a little of the water from the cooking. Rend the truffles and fry them for a few minutes on butter, then add cream.  When the cream becomes dense (add wine if it’s too dense), add the salt and pepper, yolk and give it a good mix. Pour the dressing over the pasta and sprinkle with grated parmigiano.
