Cacio e Pepe

Active Time: 10 minutes   |   Total Time: 20 minutes   |   Serves Serves 4  |   Watch Video

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons black peppercorns, cracked
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated Pecorino
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated Parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound whole-wheat spaghetti

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile, crack the peppercorns using the back of a small skillet until all of the round peppercorns are cracked. In a large bowl, use a silicone spatula to combine the Pecorino, Parmesan, butter and pepper.

When the water comes to a boil, add the salt and pasta and cook according to package directions. Once the pasta is al dente, reserve ½ cup of the pasta water, and drain the pasta. Add the pasta and ¼ cup of the pasta water to the bowl and stir to combine, adding more water, if necessary, for desired consistency.
