In my Rome recap post, I shared that I completely fell in love with Cacio e Pepe on our honeymoon – I mean, what’s not to love about a pasta dish centered around cheese (and pepper)? Luckily for me, my Cravings cookbook has a pretty good recipe (no I don’t get paid to promote this cookbook I’m just THAT obsessed with it). So what better way to spend a Friday night than recreating one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had?
Really went hard with the cheese the first time around. Not mad about it. Feel free to switch it up by mixing different cheeses, or adding pancetta. Also, to truly recreate the pasta we had in Italy I had to attempt homemade spaghetti. I discovered that it’s actually pretty simple to make and roll out pasta dough, however operating the pasta maker is definitely a two person job. See: Hunter. I use the Atlas 150 pasta maker from Crate & Barrel (thanks LL!).
