This incredibly simple dish requires only four ingredients and a few minutes of your time. * Cacio de Roma is a creamy, semi-soft cheese made from sheep's milk; it's a formaggio di pecora. This Italian gourmet cheese is made in the countryside of Rome and aged about one month. Often this cheese is referred to as a 'caciotta' because it is a small round cheese of approximately 4 pounds. Pecorino Romano cheese is the good substitute for Cacio de Roma.


  • 6 oz. pasta (such as bucatini, or spaghetti)
    3 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed, divided
    1 tsp. freshly grated black pepper
    ¾ cup finely grated Grana Padano or Parmesan (Parmigiano-Reggiano)
    ⅓ cup finely grated Pecorino
    1/3 cup cream


  • Bring 4 quarts water to a boil in a 6-qt. pot. Season with salt; add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente (2 minutes before tender). Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta cooking water.

    Meanwhile, melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a Dutch oven or other large pot or skillet over medium heat. Add pepper and cook, swirling pan, until toasted, about 1 minute.
    In a blender, combine grated cheeses with reserved pasta cooking water and cream. Blend to a creamy consistensy.

    Add pasta to pot or skillet. Reduce heat to low and add blender creamy cheese mixture, stirring and tossing with tongs until sauce coats the pasta. Transfer pasta to warm bowls and serve immediately.

    It's about as creamy cacio e pepe gets.
    When you're serving pasta,it's nice to use tongs and then give it a twist so it's got a little personality to it !.

    Maybe a little bit more cheese, grate it over top with a grating of pepper.
