Cacio e Pepe Pasta Sauce

Olive Points: 50pts

Price £5.00

Description

Weight: 180g

Cacio e pepe is a traditional Roman pasta sauce made simply from seasoned Pecorino cheese and black pepper. Cacio is the name for Pecorino in Roman dialect. Typical of the Roman ‘Cucina Povera’, cacio e pepe was a staple dish traditionally eaten by shepherds who would take a piece of cheese, some pepper and some dried pasta into the fields whilst out herding for days. It was an easy and complete energy-giving meal for them to prepare. Typically eaten with Spaghetti or Linguine this is one of the most famous Roman pasta dishes along with Carbonara. 

Cooking Tip: We suggest retaining a couple of tablespoons of the cooking water before draining the pasta and setting it aside. Then once you have drained the pasta put it back in the pan, add the Cacio e Pepe sauce and then the cooking water. Gently heat for a couple minutes until the sauce is well amalgamated with the pasta & serve immediately.

Ingredients

Seasoned Pecorino cheese, bread crumbs, black pepper, extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil, salt, natural flavours.
