View Full Version : Salsa Tartufata!

02-25-2006, 01:28 PM

A friend of mine just got back from Italy -- my present was a little jar of Salsa Tartufata, which is, apparently, truffle sauce of some sort. Ingredients: 'shrooms, olive oil, truffles, more 'shrooms, capers, etc. When I asked him what I was supposed to do with it, he wasn't entirely sure.

Any ideas? Serve it over pasta? Spread it on bread?

Google says it's a great treatment for veal, steaks, chops, and roasted meats. Sounds yummy.

Silly me, it didn't occur to me to google it -- how's lobster ravioli with truffle sauce sound? ** drool **
