  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 tbsp Double Cream

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over a medium heat. Add your linguine and cook for 1 minute less than the instructed time on the pack. Taste to make sure it's al dente. Remove around 1/2 cup/125ml of water then drain your pasta.

  2. In another bowl, mix your cream, parmesan, white truffle oil, and black pepper.
