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!
