View Full Version : ISO white cream sauce for linguine
08-01-2009, 02:35 PM
Last Thursday I had a wonderful dinner at a restaurant that I would like to replicate. It was black linguine in a white cream sauce with poached sea scallops. The cream sauce was so good I kept dipping my italian bread in it. It had a light fish flavor and was wonderful. Similar to the mussel broth I've had in the past but cream base instead of broth. Does anyone have a recipe for something similar? I'm sure it was not low calorie.

What is the name of the restaurant? If they have a website, they might have a contact form or other information such as an email address and they might just share the recipe with you.
I've had good luck asking for recipes and receiving them.

Could the white sauce have been Beurre Blanc? The non-purist version has cream in it. There is a short video on how to make the sauce at about.com which does use the cream.

Thanks guys for your responses. I did email the restaurant to see if they would share but somehow I doubt it. The menu mentioned panna tartufo below the name and I believe it has truffle in it. If anyone knows Italian maybe they can tell me what panna tartufo means.

right! Angelina, both the white and the black which are pretty pricey!
Me thinks that the black linguine was made with "Squid ink":eek:

Does this recipe (http://www.alexanderlorenz.com/recipes/tagliolini_al_tartufo_bianco_piemonte.htm) sound right?
