Cacio e Pepe is a Roman pasta dish. [1] "Cacio e Pepe" means "cheese and pepper" in several central Italian languages. As the name suggests, the ingredients of the dish are very simple and include only black pepper and Pecorino Romano cheese. [1] The only precaution to be taken in preparing this dish consists in leaving some cooking hot water with the pasta: this will melt the cheese, that will stick together with the pepper to the pasta. [1] the Cacio e pepe is typically made with long, thin spaghetti, such as tonnarelli or vermicelli.
