There’s NO better combination than Cacio e Pepe in my opinion and this is one of our all time favorite comfort foods. It’s smooth, creamy, nutty, perfectly peppery and SO SIMPLE TO MAKE. The beauty is that you only need a few ingredients and the finely grated cheese melds with the heavily salted pasta water to create the most delicious and fragrant sauce. You’ve GOT to try it.
It’s so easy and just goes to show that sometimes the simplest dishes are the most delicious. I like using both Pecorino Romano and Parmigiano Reggiano but you can totally stick to just pecorino. Hope you enjoy!
