Wow! On sale, I'm just wondering what they cost on sale??? I wish I had a recipe but obviously I cannot afford them but have heard they are out of this world. Do tell how you used them.

didn't break the bank. got an ounce for $60. gakaye suggested truffle mac n'cheese. i LOVE mac n'cheese, so am leaning towards this recipe.

edit: i somehow missed velveeta as an ingredient. no thanks. does anyone know a good substitute? would fontina work?

Sounds like a great recipe, but it looks like you'll need something to cut the richness of the blue & Gruyère cheeses. A light mild cheese might work, but I'd be more worried about how it melted - it seems like you'd need to make more roux to cover the greasiness of any regular cheese, since the only good thing about velveeta is that it melts without seperating... :-)

Fontina melts really well, so it seems like a good option.

I mean really, VELVEETA? Who puts that in a recipe?? <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Tonguea.gif" alt="" />

i was pressed for time, so i decided to keep it simple and use ingredients that i had on hand. mac n'cheese will have to be another day. i ended up making truffles with fresh papardelle. the only change i made was not salting the water for boiling the pasta. i don't salt for fresh pasta.

Le Cirque is famous for their Baked Potato with Black Truffles.
I also like them on Risotto.
Your dish looks spectacular.
Cheers

Irina, do you just top your normal rissotto recipe with shaved truffles? I'm thinking of truffled rissotto tonight...I might use the technique that L used, grating some into the dish and then garnishing with more. And I think I'll use Prosecco for the wine. Maybe romano instead of parm?

Update: I made my risotto last night, using my jarred truffles, which are black summer truffles. I grated half of one into the risotto and shaved the other half for garnish. I did use Prosecco and Romano. It was very good, although probably not nearly as good as it would have been with fresh truffles. I probably should have used more than I did, but since a little truffle goes a long way I was hesitant.

sounds delicious! a little does go a long way. i was once out for dinner with friends and the waiter was shaving truffles on our pasta; each shave had a price tag to it. my friend didn't know and let him keep going, like it was parmesan. needless to say that was one very good, but very expensive pasta!

Sorry I didn't check in sooner. Yes some grated during the cooking and some on top for garnish. But a little goes a long way is right. I always use Pecorino Romano. Sharper than Parm but I like it better.
I've even had a salad with truffle oil on it that was stupendous! LOL
Cheers

Ina Garten has a good recipe. Just Google pasta recipes with black truffles. Never tried it it but will soon.
