truffle linguine

Put the pasta on to cook, according to packet instructions.

While the pasta is cooking, take a large sauté or frying pan and heat the olive oil on a low to medium heat and add the ham until it begins to fry. Lower the heat, then add the chopped garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until the garlic has softened, but not coloured.

Add the oyster mushrooms and peas to the pan and cook for a couple of minutes until heated through, then add the spinach with a splash of water and a drizzle of truffle oil, and cover with a lid until the spinach starts to wilt. Turn off the heat and remove the lid, then set aside until the pasta is almost done.

Drain the linguine reserving a tablespoon of the pasta water, then add the pasta, reserved water, a heaped tablespoon of truffle pesto to the pan with the other ingredients and add half of the grated pecorino. Replace the lid, then holding the lid tight, toss everything together until well combined.

To finish, season with plenty of freshly ground black pepper, then divide between the serving bowls, sprinkle the remaining pecorino and drizzle with truffle oil.
