  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 250 g penne pasta
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 and 1/2 medium zucchini
  • 2 1/2 cups  Crimini mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • pinch of peperoncino (dried chili peppers)
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • a few drops white truffle oil
  • a couple sprigs chopped parsley
  • splash of white wine
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano

  2. Mince garlic

  4. Add onions, diced zucchini and mushrooms and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add white wine and let dissipate.
  6. Place pasta in boiling water. While pasta is cooking finish off vegetables in pan with a few drops of white truffle oil.

  9. Ready to serve.



  1. Cook pasta for a minute sooner than the allocated time on the package . Finish in the pan.
  2. When buying pasta look for those pastas that have a rougher texture. This will give you incredible flavor as the sauce really mingles with the pasta.
  3. The white truffle oil is an option. If you like it then put it in if not leave it out, it will be equally as good!
