Preparation

Brown the shallots in a little butter in a frying pan for a few minutes. Add the cream and the parmesan cheese. Mix well until you get a nicely combined sauce. Adjust for salt and pepper and then remove from the heat. Cook the potato gnocchi in boiling water until they rise to the surface. Drain, toss them in creamy cheese sauce and finish with a few slices of truffle. Serve hot.

Tips
If the creamy cheese sauce gets too thick, add a ladle of the gnocchi cooking water.
Trivia
You might have heard of 'truffle dogs' but in fact pigs are the best truffle-hunters.
