I got my mom this truffle artichoke sauce from World Market a while ago and we were waiting for the perfect recipe to use it in then we got a bunch of truffle swag when we went to Italy so we put together this truffle-centric recipe.
{serves 3}

  • 1 shallot
  • 6 slices prosciutto (1 1/2 oz)
  • 5 artichoke hearts (canned)
  • a few sprigs of thyme
  • drizzle truffle oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 pat butter
  • 7 crimini mushrooms
  • 3 goat cheese ‘medallions
  • panko bread crumbs
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 lb (8.8 oz) pappardelle
  • truffle artichoke sauce *

*not necessarily necessary, you could use a basic alfredo or a little cream or even go without…I found this one at world market

  1. pre-heat oven to 350º F
  2. on a baking sheet drizzle artichokes with truffle oil and insert the thyme sprigs between the leaves
  3. in a small bowl make a kind of paste out of a bit of olive oil, panko breadcrumbs, thyme leaves and a minced clove of garlic and roll goat cheese medallions in it
  4. throw those onto the baking sheet also and put the goat cheese and artichokes in the oven
  5. remove the goat cheese medallions after 30 minutes or once the outsides start to brown
  6. continue baking the artichokes for about 5 more minutes
  7. slice shallot and mushrooms
  8. in a small saute pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 pat butter, caramelize shallots over low heat, stirring occasionally until they turn a caramel color
  9. remove from pan, add more olive oil as needed (not much), then lay prosciutto strips in pan until they crisp up, then remove those and add the mushrooms
  10. stir occasionally until mushrooms are fragrant and look cooked through
  11. bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pappardelle according to package instructions
  12. pour truffle artichoke sauce (or whatever you choose to use, not if you’re using cream)  into a glass bowl and once pasta is just about done cooking, add 1/2 cup of the pasta water into the sauce to thin and stir to incorporate
  13. drain pasta and add thinned sauce, mushrooms and shallots, prosciutto, artichokes and goat cheese and garnish with more thyme
