Pasta di Gragnano is a premium quality artisanal pasta made with 100% Italian durum wheat semolina.

This pasta comes from Gragnano, a town in the Campania region of Southern Italy with a world-famous pasta tradition that stretches back to the 1800s. The combination of sea breeze, sunshine and humidity create the perfect conditions for drying pasta. Whilst Pasta di Gragnano is no longer dried outside on the streets and rooftops, it is still slow-dried at low temperatures and shaped through traditional bronze dies to achieve that perfect porous consistency for absorbing sauces and flavours.

Truffle Oil Pasta

1 lb mushrooms mixed (450 g)
1 lb pasta (450 g)
4 eggs
5 tablespoons truffle olive oil
⅔ cup heavy cream (150 ml)
3 tablespoons Parmesan, with more to serve
fresh thyme sprigs (optional but adds!)
fine sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • Prepare the mushrooms: Clean them with a paper towel and slice them. Set them aside.
  • Cook the pasta: Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add salt generously. Add pasta and cook according to the package instructions.While the pasta is cooking, prepare the rest.
  • Make the sauce: Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Add 3 tbsp truffle olive oil, heavy cream, Parmesan, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Cook mushrooms: Heat 2 tbsp truffle olive oil in a large pan. Cook the mushrooms for about 5 minutes until most of their released water evaporates. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Drain the pasta reserving a little of the cooking water.
  • Add the pasta to the pot containing the cooked mushrooms. Stir well to combine and heat on low heat for about 1 minute until everything is really hot.
  • Combine: Turn off the heat and remove the pan from heat. Pour in the truffle oil sauce. Using tongs or two forks (careful not to scratch the pan), lift the spaghetti so that they mix easily with the egg mixture. The mixture should thicken and coat the pasta, but it should not scramble. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the pasta water to moisten the dish.
  • Adjust the taste with more salt and pepper if necessary, garnish with fresh thyme leaves, and serve immediately with a little more Parmesan and a grating of black pepper.
