Gluten Free Spinach Pasta with Black Truffle Romano

The inspiration for this came from a taste of some delicious Romano cheese with black truffle I sampled while buying some olive oil and balsamic infusions on a recent trip to wine country. I found a wonderful fresh spinach pasta that was gluten-free that would let that distinctive cheese shine without overpowering its subtle flavor. The garlic, olive oil and pistachios compliment this melange to form a perfectly delightful yet simple recipe.
