Cacio e Pepe

Total Time:

20mins

Prep:

10mins

Cook:

10mins

Skill Level:

Easy

Ingredients

  • 300 g fresh or dry spaghetti, linguine or fettuccine
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino Romano cheese
  • freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It

Cook the pasta according to package directions, reserving some of the starchy pasta water in a mug or measuring cup. (If you cook the pasta in less water than usual, the cooking liquid will be even starchier). Heat the butter in a large skillet and once melted, add the drained pasta, a generous amount of freshly grated Parmesan, and enough of the pasta water to create a silky sauce as you toss the mix with tongs. Grind over plenty of pepper and serve.
