Pappardelle pasta served in a cream-based sauce with butter, garlic, cherry tomatoes, lime, truffle oil and shallots.


  • 12 ounces pappardelle pasta
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1012 regular or jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 12 tablespoons truffle oil
  • 1/2 lime, juice squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lime wedges for serving


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and a dash of olive oil. Cook pappardelle pasta until al dente. Strain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, season shrimp with salt and pepper. In a large saucepan on medium-high heat, sauté shrimp in olive oil until fully cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side (or until no longer translucent).
  3. Add butter, shallots and garlic to the saucepan and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add heavy cream, lime juice, and chopped parsley and let simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Fold in pappardelle and cherry tomatoes until pasta is fully coated in the creamy white sauce. Let simmer for an additional 3-4 minutes or until sauce slightly thickens. Lastly, drizzle with truffle oil before serving (truffle oil is strong so you will only need 1-2 tablespoons for the recipe).
  5. Serve immediately with a lime wedge and topped with additional chopped parsley.


The key to using truffle oil in pasta is to add it when all cooking is nearly complete. Truffle oil will easily cook-off at high temperatures. Thanks to its potent flavor, it’s best added as a small finishing touch to pasta dishes. This will ensure as much truffle flavor comes through.
