I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for a little while and I finally had all the ingredients in my pantry this week. This pasta dish is incredibly simple, focusing on the two stars of the show, cheese and pepper. I followed Bon Appetit’s recipe for this dish.
- 6 oz Pasta, your choice
- 3/4 Cup Pasta Water
- 3 TBSP Unsalted Butter, cubed, divided
- 1 TSP Fresh Cracked Pepper
- 3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan
- 1/3 Cup Grated Pecorino
Lets Get Cooking
Bring water to a boil and season with salt. Cook the pasta per package instructions, making sure it’s just to al dente. Reserve 3/4 cup pasta water.
In a large skillet melt 2 TBSP butter. Add in the pepper and lightly toast for about 1 minute.
Add 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Add in cooked pasta + remaining butter.
Reduce heat to low and add in the cheeses until they melt. Add in the extra pasta water if the sauce seems dry.
Serve & enjoy!
