Cacio e pepe is nothing more than pasta, two kinds of cheese, butter and pepper, but combined perfectly with a little reserved pasta water and it makes it a creamy delicious bowl of pasta.

We make Cacio e Pepe when we’ve been traveling and come home with nothing in the house…all of the ingredients can be kept on hand and last for weeks if not months. It’s so good that it’s perfect for company too!
