Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta water; drain pasta, and set aside (reserve pot).

  • In pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add half-and-half and cheeses; stir to combine, and bring just to a simmer. Add pasta, and toss to combine. If needed, gradually add enough reserved pasta water to thin sauce (sauce will thicken as it stands). Serve sprinkled with parsley.

This is a great, delicate recipe. Add the cheese upon serving and add salt and pepper if it is too bland for you. Personally, I love just tasting the cheese without a lot of garlic or other seasoning. If you have good cheese, you will have flavorful pasta.

Worth noting that this recipe is listed as being vegetarian, or is at least lumped in with other vegetarian recipes, which it is most certainly not. Pecorino Romano contains natural renet, rather than the microbial (manmade) alternative which IS.
