Picture for Truffle Pasta inspired by Broad City

1,469,979 views  In the final season of Broad City, when negotiating the terms of their relationship, Ilana and Lincoln describe a bowl of pasta in particularly explicit terms.

And to use my giant wheel of parmesan for something other than snacking.
