Day 27. Recipe 27.

It isn't often we fall in love hard for something. Every once in a while, however, a substance comes along that sweeps us off our feet. We find ourselves surrendering to the bliss that is brought on by this thing that suddenly gives our lives pizazz and meaning.

And it's always the simple things where we find love.

Cacio e Pepe is no exception. 

Deeply salted noodles caressed in Pecorino Romano cheese is the taste of divinity. 

My husband unknowingly requested we buy red sauce "Just in case the kids wouldn't eat the plain noodles."

Oh, how he ate his words as the entire family sat together quietly filling our bellies to the brim with Cacio e Pepe.

Everyone fell in love hard with this recipe.


Cacio e Pepe 

(adapted from Tales Of Ambrosia)

Step 1: Bring a tall pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions.

Step 2: 3 minutes before the pasta is done, place a large microwavable serving bowl in the microwave and heat for approximately 1-2 minutes until warm. Remove from microwave and set next to the stove.

Step 3: When the pasta is done, using a ladle place 1-2 scoops of salted water from the pasta in the warmed bowl. Add half the cheese and let melt. Drain the pasta and add it to the heated bowl stirring with the salted cheese mixture. Add the remaining cheese if the pasta is too wet. Top with black pepper to taste, add any remaining cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy!
