Cacio e Pepe

This is a very simple pasta dish, similar to aglio e olio and truffle oil pasta. I like to make this on days when I need to get dinner on the table quickly.  That’s usually when I’m already tired and super-hungry, no energy even for a drive-thru and no patience to wait for delivery. 😀

I don’t need to chop anything, so less clean up too.  I do not drain the pasta anymore, I just put the pot closer to the pan, then transfer the cooked pasta into the sauce using tongs. I grate the cheeses into a bowl which I also used for my serving of pasta…one less bowl to wash 🙂
