Ingredients

For the duck:
For the tomato sauce:

Directions

Mix the 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and garlic together and coat the duck with the seasonings rubbing into the surface of the duck. On the stovetop heat the oil or lard in a deep roasting pan (if you will be using the oven) or in a large Dutch oven (if you will be cooking on the range). (Note: you will be poaching the duck, not frying it, so, it is important to avoid making the oil too hot.) Add the duck to the warm oil. If you are using the oven put the duck in a preheated 200 degree F oven for about 6 to 8 hours. If you are using the stovetop, cook the duck at a 180 degree F simmer for 6 to 8 hours. The duck must be cooked until it falls away from the bone. Remove all the duck meat from the bones and reserve meat until needed.

Fill a large pot with water, add salt and boil pasta until al dente, cooked with a bite, about 10 to 12 minutes, drain and set aside. While the pasta is boiling, saute garlic, onion, and sun-dried tomatoes until the onion is translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes and cook together for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, as needed.

Shred the duck meat, combine with sauce and toss with pasta. Transfer to a serving dish and top with fresh chives and basil, sprinkle with Parmesan and drizzle with truffle oil, for garnish.

Cook's Note

The duck has to be prepared the day before because of the long slow cooking time.
