Rigatoni Pasta Recipe with Pancetta and Summer Truffles

Rigatoni Pasta Recipe with Pancetta and Summer Truffles Pro Tip: Choose taste and texture over appearance when cooking. Barilla Executive Chef Lorenzo Boni recommends peeling the skin off of summer truffles before cooking with them — while the skin may look appetizing, it has a sandy texture that doesn’t complement pasta. Summer truffles are the perfect addition to this rigatoni dish with pancetta. Recipe and Photo Credit: Chef Lorenzo Boni
