Cacio e Pepe

posted in: Recipes 0

Cacio e Pepe is something that I had for the first time while in Tuscany. It was so flavorful, and so very simple. I’m not a huge fan of black pepper, but I love the way it stands out in this dish. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients per serving:

1 cup parmesan
2 TB butter
1/2 T pepper
1/4 T salt
1 cup pasta water
1 pound pasta


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add pasta.
  • A few minutes before the pasta is ready, add your butter to a pan over medium heat.
  • After the butter has melted add your pepper.
  • Drain your pasta, reserving 1 cup of the water.
  • Add your pasta to the pan with the butter and pepper.
  • Reduce heat to low and add your cheese. Toss the pasta to coat. Add additional pasta water if necessary.


Serve with fresh parmesan and enjoy!
