Cheese and Pepper Pasta (Cacio e Pepe)
This pasta is simple with few ingredients. Definitely use real Parmigiano-Reggiano and Pecorino Romano, as well as freshly ground black pepper. With so few ingredients, you don’t want to skimp. This dish is great for a fast dinner, especially if you’re at the end of your groceries. Pasta, cheese, and butter are staples in our house. Topping the dish with a sunny side up egg is not traditional, but is great over leftover pasta the next day.
