  1. Add the truffle oil, minced garlic and dried chili flakes to a medium sized saucepan. Slowly warm the garlic and chili flakes over medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes, just until the garlic is fragrant.
  2. Add the San Marzano tomatoes to the garlic chili infused truffle oil, gently breaking up with tomatoes with a spoon. Let the sauce simmer for at least 20 minutes then turn off the heat.
  3. In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Heavily salt the water, add the pasta and cook according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and drain when al-dante.
  4. Transfer the simmered sauce to a blender along with the hot sauce, plant-based butter and plant-based parmesan. Blend on high for 30 seconds to a minute, the sauce should be silky smooth.
  5. Transfer the sauce back to the pot over medium heat. Fold in the pasta and reserved pasta water as needed to thin the sauce to your liking, simmer for 2 minutes.
  6. To serve, top with more parmesan cheese.
