Cacio e Pepe that is Cheese and Pepper: the recipe

Cacio e Pepe (Cheese and Pepper) is a classic pasta dish of Roman Cuisine. You can use Bucatini or Rigatoni pasta. The beauty of the recipe is in its simplicity, there are just the 2 ingredients: Pecorino Romano D.O.P. and freshly ground black pepper.

I would recommend a quality Pecorino that won’t become lumpy once in the pan. However, when you blend in the cheese it is important to lower the heat… Here is the recipe of my Cacio e Pepe.
