Chicken Diane w/ Black Truffle Linguine

So I’ve heard that steak Diane is a staple at a lot of restaurants. I also heard it’s pretty tasty. Since I don’t cook beef, I made a chicken version with a unique pasta. There are 2 different types of truffles, the gourmet chocolates and the fungus that grows underground (similar to a mushroom; a very expensive one). When you see truffles used in culinary dishes they’re referring to the fungus. I’ve only had one dish accented with truffles and it was delicious. Since they are super expensive and rare, restaurants use them to enhance dishes versus serving them up as a main dish (that would set you back). There’s nothing like a good pasta with a yummy sauce.
