When I’m cooking in my kitchen (this happens on rare occasions), I usually rip open a box of Barilla (surprisingly, most Italians prefer this brand), however I stumbled into Salumeria Bertin, located across from the Terme Euganee train station (not the typical tacky souvenir shop type), and found pasta with Tartufo (Truffle) as well as a bag of Aglio & Basilico (Garlic & Basil) Pasta.
Let me translate that for you: the ingredients were rolled into the pasta dough, so all you have to do is boil and add butter… can you say easy??
Step 1: Open the package and decide how much you want to eat (Italians suggest 70g per person)
Step 2: Boil water in a pot and add some salt.
Step 3: Once water is boiled, add pasta for the amount time written on package- Truffle Pasta takes 3 Mins, the Garlic & Basil Pasta takes 9 mins.
Step 4: When timer rings, drain pasta from water.
Step 5: Add your favorite olive oil, a dash of butter and MANGIA!
