  1. 4 tablespoons salted butter
  2. 8 ounces dried egg fettuccine or tagliatelle
  3. 8 ounces Robiola Rocchetta cheese, at room temperature, cut into 1-inch pieces
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 medium fresh white or black truffle, peeled and sliced, or one 2-ounce jar sliced truffles
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Cook over moderate heat until the milk solids turn a rich brown and the butter smells nutty, about 6 minutes. Pour the butter into a bowl.
  2. Cook the pasta in the boiling water until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Return the pasta to the pot. Add the reserved water and the browned butter and toss with 2 forks. Add the cheese and toss until it begins to melt; season with salt and pepper. Transfer the pasta to warmed bowls, shave the truffle on top and serve right away.
