Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook the pasta for 8 minutes (or just 2 minutes under the suggested cooking time). Drain well, reserving at least 1½ cups of pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large straight sided skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and truffle oil. Cook stirring with a spoon under the butter has melted. Add the pepper and toast, stirring often, until fragrant. Add 1/2 cup of pasta water to the pan and stir until combined.
  3. Add the pasta to the pan, and turn off the heat. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and Pecorino cheese. Add another 1/2 cup pasta water and stir to coat all of the pasta in the cheese. Stir to combine to create a light creamy sauce. Add additional pasta water as needed to maintain the light sauce consistency. Serve with more grated cheese and a drizzle of truffle oil if desired.

    I LOVE Cacio e Pepe and this recipe definitely did not disappoint! The addition of the truffle oil was new to me but it was so good! Another Giada recipe on repeat!
