Cacio e Pepe
Step by Step Instructions
In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta to package directions. Reserve 1 mug pasta water before draining.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the black pepper and toast until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add ⅓ mug reserved pasta water and bring to simmer. Add pasta, tossing into butter mixture for 30secs.
Add cheeses and toss constantly for 30secs, removing pan from heat when about half the cheese has melted. (If sauce is too thick, loosen with more pasta water.)
Serve & enjoy!
