A few years ago, I wrote about the delicious cacio e pepe dish I had in New York City. I rhapsodized over the simple-yet-blow-your-mind combo of pasta, pepper, and cheese. Well, food blogger extraordinaire, Smitten Kitchen, recently dined at another NYC-based Italian restaurant (apparently there’s more than one, imagine that), had the same dish, had the same delirious feelings of love towards it, and has written up a recipe to make it at home.
Looks faaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous. And ridiculously easy. I’d pair it with a nice, dry red wine, and a salad with some orange slices, sliced almonds, and a bit of more Romano cheese. Oh and that would make me SO happy!
