We’re happy to be collaborating with the “Asian Food Solder” Chef Melvyn Lee, ambassador of San Remo pasta for this wholesome recipe video!
What we have today is an easy yet fulfilling truffle carbonara pasta recipe that can be prepared in under 30 minutes.
Crispy back bacon was used for that extra crunch while the fragrance of poached garlic is rendered in the bacon fats. Milk was used for a lighter texture and the dish is topped off perfectly with a freshly cracked egg yolk. Drizzle truffle oil over the pasta, followed by even more Parmigiano cheese for a sumptuous meal!
Chef Melvyn’s Pasta 101 Tip: The high starch content in good quality pasta naturally helps to thicken the sauce, just like the one used in this truffle carbonara recipe!
