For a cream-based pasta, it doesn’t get cloying unlike other versions such as carbonara. Flavored with a few simple ingredients and prepared with minimal fuss, a dash of salt and a generous sprinkle of Parmesan are all you need to get this dish going from the pan to the plate.

  1. Just tried this and it is sooooo good. Added some formaggio cheese on top for extra texture and gooey-ness! 😀

  2. truffle oil works better if added last. just drizzle some before tossing or serving. it would preserve the aroma and taste of the truffle oil.

  3. Good job, Pepper.ph! Excited to try this. Anyway, where can I buy De Cecco spaghettini? 🙂

    1. Nowadays, you can buy truffle oil even in supermarkets like Rustans. A good bet would be delis too like Santis, Epicurious or specialty stores such as Oliviers and Co.
