Bon Appetit Cacio E Pepe
This recipe has 6 ingredients, including salt. I doubled the recipe in order for it to feed my family of four. It took me less than twenty minutes to prepare this entire pasta dish, with the majority of the time spent cooking the pasta and shredding the cheese. This dish is so simple to prepare that my two boys were able to help me in the kitchen.
My husband and I felt that this dish was lacking a flavor, so we added crushed red pepper. The cracked black pepper didn't add enough depth, but the addition of the red pepper provided the perfect flavor. I liked that this recipe takes few ingredients and can be done at the last minute when a busy weekday turns chaotic. This is a perfect quick, 6 ingredient meal, which can be modified to feed a family of two or many more.
