Pasta Cacio e Pepe | The Ultimate Italian Macaroni and Cheese Recipe | Italian Food Recipe

cacio e pepe

INGREDIENTS:
300g fresh Tagliolini (or spaghetti chitarra)
300g Pecorino Romano (grated)
Pepper
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Salt
5L water

UTENSILS:
1 medium sized deep bowl
Whisk
Large pot for boiling pasta
Pasta strainer

METHOD:
1. Boil the water on the stove in a large pot.
2. Add 200g Pecorino Romano to a bowl, along with 2 tablespoons of hot water and a drizzle of EVOO.
3. Stir well using a whisk and once it has thickened, add another 2 tablespoons of hot water. Mix it again and sprinkle some freshly ground pepper over the top.
4. Once this has been mixed through, wait for the water to come to a boil and cook the pasta until it is al dente.
5. While the pasta is cooking, add one more tablespoon of hot water from the pot to the creamy mixture and whisk it through so it becomes smooth and creamy.
6. When the pasta is ready, strain it well and add it to the bowl. Add 100g of Pecorino, a sprinkle of pepper, a small drizzle of EVOO and finally, just a touch of water.
7. Mix it really well so the cream covers each strand of pasta.

HOW TO SERVE:
1. Immediately! Tagliolini Cacio e pepe must be eaten as quickly as possible as it is best enjoyed hot and right off the stove!
2. Add one final sprinkle of pepper on top.
