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.

Bella Bella is a locally owned Italian restaurant in Tallahassee. It has been opened for about 10 years. Lunch at Bella Bella has a menu of Italian sandwiches while Dinner is dominated by classics and pastas. The restaurant does offer an extensive wine menu.
It’s ok to simply combine the pasta + sauce and serve but there is a better way. When prepared properly you will get a better taste out of your dish. It also gives you an extra opportunity to add additional flavors to your dish and give your food a more restaurant quality. Best part is how quick and easy it is.
