Sartori® Classic Parmesan Cacio e Pepe
- 1 deli bag Sartori Classic Grated Parmesan
- 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
- 3/4 pound long pasta (think bucatini, linguine or spaghetti)
- Olive oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions.
While the pasta cooks, combine cheese and black pepper along with a few teaspoons of water (just enough to make a thick paste) in a large bowl.
Using tongs, transfer cooked pasta to the bowl (reserving the cooking water). Stir pasta vigorously until each strand is coated with cheese, adding a few tablespoons of olive oil while stirring. If the cheese is looking clumpy, add a 1/4 or 1/2 cup of cooking water as needed to loosen it up — the sauce should be creamy.
Serve with extra grated Classic Parmesan and black pepper.
