Date Night Pasta – California Caviar Company

Date Night Pasta


Serves 2

  • 9 oz cheese tortellini
  • 3 tbl unsalted butter
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tbl parsley, chopped
  • Salt & fresh ground black pepper
  • lemon zest
  • 1 oz Truffle Infused Roe


Start by cooking your cheese tortellini based package instructions. While the pasta is cooking you can start on the creamy garlic butter sauce. Over medium  heat, melt butter in a saute pan with a splash of pasta water from your pot and whisk until emulsified. Add your garlic and sweat for 1 minute until fragrant. Keep at a gently simmer in order not to not break the butter. 

Once pasta is cooked, strain the water and add tortellini into your sauce pan. Add grated Parmesan, chopped parsley, 1 tsp of Truffle infused roe and a little salt and pepper for seasoning. Gently fold all the ingredients together. When plating be sure to spoon sauce all around the plate, then grate more Parmesan cheese, lemon zest and a touch more truffle roe on top to finish!
