Recipe: Linguini in Brown Butter Truffle Cream

About This Recipe

Until this year I had never had truffle oil. In fact, there was a time I thought truffle meant chocolate. For those of you who don’t know, a truffle is a rare mushroom that grows under the ground. The chocolate ones are supposed to look like the mushroom. Truffle oil is a taste and smell that one really can’t describe. It is something that needs to be tried at least once by everyone. There are a few places in Tallahassee that offer dishes featuring truffle oil (such as Clusters & Hops and The Wine Loft). I still haven’t had an actual truffle, they are too expensive. This dish was the first usage I came up with for truffle oil.

Mary has a problem. She is obsessed with Panera Bread’s Broccoli Cheddar Soup. She was eating it at least 3 times a week while she lived with me. I suggested Mary learned to make Broccoli Cheddar soup at home. It would taste better, be better for you (although still unhealthy) and be cheaper. What follows in the recipe we came up with to save her from Panera’s evil hands. This recipe will have less photos than usual because I lost a few of them. I apologize for that. Will Mary like the homemade soup as well? Check out the rest of the recipe to find out…
