Truffle oil ideas

I'm going to trader joes this weekend and will be buying my first bottle of Truffle oil. Any ideas on how to use it? I have never tasted truffles (on my list of must eat foods before I die)
What is the best way to use it to get the full effects? We are big grillers and pasta eaters.
Use it on simply dressed pastas...mild flavors, so it doesn't get lost. Such as plain pasta tossed with a little olive oil and grated parmesan. I always like to drizzle the oil over the assembled pasta as a finish (about a teaspoon per serving).
It's also really good similarly applied to soft scrambled eggs, creamy potatoes, etc.
I know that this is a pretty standard answer, but I love it on mashed potatoes. I also love it on pasta that has a mushroom/cream sauce (preferrably potato gnocci) - but not when its hot out!!!!
