Cacio e Pepe (Cheese & Pepper Pasta)mmm

Cacio is cheese, pepe is pepper, a traditional recipe from the Lazio region of Italy.

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 1 Cook: 12 min

Ingredients

Spaghetti 100g
Salt for the pasta 1-1.5% of water
Butter 1 tbsp
Olive oil 1 tbsp
Black pepper as required
Water 2 ladles
Parmigiano reggiano as required

Method

1
Start cooking the pasta first because the sauce only takes 3 minutes.
2
Put the butter, olive oil, water and black pepper in a frying pan on high heat.
3
Allow the sauce to reduce then add some pasta water to make a good runny sauce.
4
When the pasta is cooked, drain and add to Step 3.
5
Sprinkle over a handful of grated cheese on top. Add some more pasta water if necessary to make a plentiful sauce.
6
You should have a sauce that looks like this. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle over generously again with more cheese.

Tips & Note

●In Italy, pecorino romano cheese is often used but parmigiano reggiano is fine.
●Use butter instead of garlic to give a quicker flavour to the dish.
●Put only 1 tbsp butter, as it will taste too buttery otherwise.
