5 Best Truff Pasta Sauce Recipes

Jarred pasta sauces don’t have a great reputation among serious home cooks, but the tides have been turning in recent years. High-quality, jarred sauces are becoming more and more readily available. This means that home cooks can have delicious pasta entrees cooked and ready without sacrificing flavors or settling for overprocessed products.

One brand that has taken the jarred pasta sauce world by storm is Truff. Truff is known for its variety of sauces, which usually include either black or white truffles. We were able to test several Truff sauces using several different recipes, and we have to say that we are thoroughly impressed. Here are our top five recipes using just three Truff sauces.

Truff’s Black Truffle Pomodoro Pasta Sauce

With black truffle and red chili peppers, this Black Truffle Pomodoro sauce is savory and delicious. It also has just a bit of spice to brighten things up. The tomatoes manage to taste fresh and the blend of herbs provides a depth of flavor that enhances the overall product.

1. Black Truffle Ragu

A classic Ragu goes well with pretty much any pasta, but this version with Truff’s Black Truffle Pomodoro and fettuccine is out of this world. This recipe uses a mixture of ground beef, ground pork, and bacon, providing plenty of fat and umami to the palette. The fettuccine soaks the sauce up perfectly and provides a fun way to eat this delightful meal. Since the sauce is already made, all you have to do is sauté some onions and add a bit of white wine to elevate this dish to the next level.

2. Spaghetti all’Amatriciana

All’Amatriciana is a traditional pasta sauce originating from the Lazio region of Italy. It is a simple but tasty sauce featuring guanciale (cured pig cheek), pecorino cheese, and tomato. This recipe is made even easier by using Truff’s Black Truffle Pomodoro Sauce, allowing you to sit at your table with a big plate of pasta in less than 30 minutes. Whileyou can use any long noodle for all’Amatriciana, we like the texture of spaghetti to complement Truff’s rich and satisfying sauce.

The cubed guanciale cooks quickly, and you’ll be able to taste the rendered fat throughout the rest of the dish. If you can’t find guanciale, pancetta or thick-cut bacon will also work in a pinch. They won’t provide quite as much fat as guanciale, but the flavor will still be there. This is a very rich dish, so be sure to garnish it with fresh parsley, chives, or basil to add a hint of freshness at the end.

Truff’s Black Truffle Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce

For those who enjoy adding spices to their food, Truff’s Black Truffle Arrabbiata Sauce is the one to beat. The black winter truffle is as decadent as it is delectable, and the tomatoes and herbs in the sauce balance out the earthiness of the truffle in a sensational way.

3. Spaghetti Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Shrimp Fra Diavolo brings a well-balanced flavor profile to Truff’s Black Truffle Arrabbiata Sauce, with the help of fresh garlic and white wine. Don’t let the “diavolo” part intimidate you – this dish is only as spicy as what’s in the jar. This recipe calls for spaghetti, but any long noodle such as bucatini, linguine, or even fettuccine will also work well. If you want to take it up a notch, use black spaghetti and squid ink for this dish.

Consider adding some cherry tomatoes and spinach at the very end for some additional texture, color, and flavor. The tomatoes should blister, and the spinach should wilt quickly, allowing you to incorporate vegetables into your meal with little effort.

4. Penne all’Arrabbiata

This penne dish makes perfect use of Truff’s Arrabbiata sauce by introducing umami with the help of anchovies. The dish comes together perfectly with the addition of black olives and parsley. The recipe calls for four anchovy filets, so you won’t notice any fishy flavor once they melt into the sauce.

Garlic adds a pungent, sweet flavor, and should only be cooked for a few minutes before adding the Arrabbiata sauce. The beauty of this dish lies in its simplicity, and the few ingredients listed will satisfy even the hungriest individuals. However, you can always grate some Pecorino cheese on top or sprinkle a dash of crushed red pepper if you feel so inclined.

Truff’s White Truffle Hot Sauce

This is ideal for adventurous eaters who crave spicy things. At 3,000 Scoville units, you won’t need to sign a waiver to eat it, but your tastebuds will be able to notice its flavor immediately. The white truffle, agave nectar, and coriander tie the sauce together. It is surprising how there are mellow notes to this hot sauce, which in turn creates a wonderful flavor sensation in your mouth.

Tagliatelle and sausage are an iconic duo in Italian cuisine, and this recipe adds a spicy, modern twist. Truff’s White Truffle Hot Sauce isn’t considered a traditional Italian sauce, but it works wonderfully with the rich sausage and toothy tagliatelle. If you want to add even more of a kick, consider picking up hot Italian sausage rather than sweet or mild, and top your dish with crushed red pepper.

The porcini mushrooms provide supplemental umami to the white truffles, and shallots and celery help cut through the richness of this pasta dish. Tomato sauce adds a touch of acidity to complement the spicy hot sauce, rounding out one of the most complete pasta dishes you may ever taste. Believe it or not, this recipe takes less than an hour to prepare. Amaze your dinner guests by preparing this meal for them.
