READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by kittycatmom

Rich and delicious! Uses whole wheat and regular pasta... a great way to add whole grain. DH didn't even notice that we were eating a "healthier" pasta dish! I've also made this with roasted broccoli with is just a wonderful! **Note -- recipe calls for truffle oil, but extra light olive oil works fine too. I have this clipped from an old magazine... not sure which one...
