Let me start of by saying that this pasta dish is not for the faint hearted. Seriously. It has been said that if you do any research on coronary heart disease, you will find that the leading cause will be Armando Percuoco’s fettuccine al tartufovo (truffled egg pasta). Yes, okay, I know I exaggerate too much (and my husband will wholeheartedly agree with you on this one)…. but if you were going to die eating a pasta dish – you would want THIS ONE to take you down.
Why? The ingredient list reads like the top outlawed food for weight watchers – butter, cream, eggs, pasta and cheese.
But -it’s that heart stoppingly good. Really.
This dish originates from Armando Percuoco who owns Buon Ricordo. This is their signature dish and over 50% of people will order this dish at his restaurant.
I don’t care what anyone else says – this restaurant deserves its two hats!
