The dish is made with bucatini pasta, a type of thick spaghetti, with a sauce made from Pecorino cheese and black pepper. It likely originated in Rome, as both bucatini and Pecorino cheese are in Roman cuisine.

What is cacio e pepe

The Roman pasta dish “pasta fresca” means fresh cheese in Italian. This meal consists of spaghetti, black pepper, and Pecorino Romano – which gives it an intense flavor that’s sharp with nutty notes from the peppercorns combined while also being hot due to their proximity at hand when you eat them!
