Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe by Mary Kelly

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 pounds spaghetti
  • 3/4 cups of freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of coarsely ground black pepper Salt

Method:

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cheeses.

Return the pasta to the pot. Working quickly, add 6 tablespoons of the reserved cooking water, 2 tablespoons at a time, alternating with the cheeses; toss well to thoroughly coat the pasta between additions. Sprinkle on the black pepper and season the pasta with salt; toss again.

Transfer the pasta to a warmed serving bowl. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of cooking water, as necessary, tossing until a creamy sauce forms. Serve right away.

    This recipe sounds good but it is a bit familiar with the old Maltese one that instead of water you add butter. Also some chopped parsley..
