Truffle Miso Fettuccine with Seared Scallops -松露味噌意大利面

How about whipping up a romantic dinner for two in the comfort of your home for this coming Valentine’s Day?

We created a dish of Truffle Miso Fettuccine and Seared Scallops using San Remo’s Fettuccine, which will do nothing less than impress your partner. The earthy rich pungent taste of truffles shines though this dish. Pasta, cream and truffles are a simple Italian repertoire, not complex but has a depth of flavour. Without complicating the taste profile, and a simple way to heighten the depth flavours, we added 1 tsp of white miso paste.  The silky cream sauce coats each strand of fettuccine with the black truffle paste, leaving only the seared scallops to complete this dish.

The dish looks as though you have slaved the whole day in the kitchen but in fact it took you no time at all. Start the meal with a simple salad, end with a decadent dessert and have it with copious amount of chilled champagne or white wine. One famous chef, Lidia Bastianich has described the smell and taste of truffles causes amorous feelings. Belíssimo!
