Cacio e Pepe is an easy, fast, and flavorful pasta recipe that’s essentially a grown up version of mac and cheese.
When a recipe has so few ingredients, you want to use the best quality options available. If you live near a market that sells freshly made pasta, that will truly take this to the next level. But more importantly, get good quality blocks of cheese, and grate it yourself. If you can find Parmigiano-Reggiano instead of regular parmesan cheese, that’s the gold standard.
