Over the years we’ve spent many date nights at home instead of going out, which is pretty typical for parents with young children.

And although we missed the excitement of leaving the house and joining the buzzy world for a night we made sure the food at home was always restaurant worthy.

This creamy pasta dish is something we prepare often. It combines the comfort and elegance in one simple recipe.

It’s no surprise that variations of this recipe are peppered throughout this website. Pasta with pancetta and peas is one of them. Chicken and Bacon Pasta is another favourite. Or you can add a touch of tomatoes and have another tasty number in the form of Prawn Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce.

And it all starts with this basic Pasta Cream Sauce. Once you master it, there is no stopping you.

My point is this recipe is very versatile. Add any ingredients you love and enjoy your Italian inspired dinner 20 minutes later. Yes, it’s that simple.

Special nights call for special food, right? I want my date night food to be quick and easy. But it should preferably look and taste like it came from a Michelin star restaurant.

Creamy Pasta Recipe

This pasta cooked with bacon, portobello mushrooms and truffle oil is so straightforward, anyone can make it!

Tagliatelle or fettuccine tossed with heavy cream, bacon, Portobello mushrooms and Parmesan cheese. You can also use linguine instead.

I used fresh pasta here but good quality dried pasta is just as good and will be a fair substitute. However if you are up to the challenge, here is a detailed tutorial on how to make fresh pasta at home.

Since it’s a date night pasta dish I’ve skipped the garlic. But if garlic is something you cannot give up, go ahead and add 1 clove.

Instead of garlic flavour and to make it extra special I drizzled the dish with a couple of teaspoons of truffle oil. You can skip the oil if it’s not your cup of tea.

Truffle oil is an ingredient impossible to describe if you’ve never had it before. After you have your first taste or a sniff, you will recognise its beautiful aroma anywhere.

Earthy and luxurious. Just the thing to take your date night intoto the realm of magical.

What Truffle Oil To Buy

There are two types of truffles oil. Black Truffle Oil and White Truffle Oil. Black tends to have a stronger, earthy flavour. This is the one I used in this recipe.

Whichever truffle you choose to buy, the main thing to watch out for whether or not it’s real. There are many oil on the market that are fake. They are flavoured with a synthetic flavour of truffles concocted in a lab.

The best way to tell if you are buying the real thing is to look at the ingredient list. Avoid anything that lists “truffle flavour” or “truffle aroma”.

The real truffle oil should have “truffle” in the ingredient list and better yet truffle bits floating at the bottom of the bottle.

It’s important to mention that even real truffle oil has an expiration date, so if you don’t use it often enough it will simple stop smelling like truffles. To avoid that, I buy a very small bottle.

This creamy pasta with bacon and portobello mushrooms is the ultimate date night treat! Quick and absolutely delicious!
