Very easy to make, maybe the easiest sauce. Like any Italian dish, the secret is in the good ingredients. In this case, the good ingredients are freshly made pasta and good pecorino and parmesan cheese.

What you will need

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

3/4 pound tonnarelli, linguini or spaghetti

Good olive oil

1 1/2 cups grated pecorino cheese

How to cook

1

Make fresh pasta

We made the fresh pasta using Antimo Caputo 00 flour. It's authentic and easily findable on amazon. I also tried to add some pepper directly to the pasta. (Not traditional)

Boil water, add pasta and flour

Put a pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta and bit of flower when it's boiling. Here's the secret: throw a bit of flower in the water

Mix cheese, pepper and hot water

Add the cheese and pepper to a bowl where you're going to serve the pasta. With a ladle, add some of the boiling water (with the secret flower) and mix just enough to make a thick paste.

We made with talharim fresh pasta, but we replaced the pepper and the parmesan by lemon pepper and prima donna cheese.
