A spicy and fast pasta recipe: spaghetti cacio e pepe (cheese and peeper spaghetti)

This is a typical roman dish and it is good also for vegetarians
It is a spicy and tasty dish, very quick and easy, and I’m sure you can cook it even in a last minute friends reunion : give it a try and you’ ll always make a good impression.

Ingredients for 4 people:
         3/4 pound of spaghetti
      1 to 2 tablespoons freshly ground pepper (depending on how spicy you want it)
      a bit of the pasta cooking liquid (about 1/4 to 1/2 of a ladel-full)
       2  cups  of freshly grounded  pecorino romano
       Extra virgin Italian oil (2 or 3 tablespoons)
     Boil your spaghetti  in  a pot with salted  water until perfectly al dente (about 8 minutes)
     In a separate pan  add some of the cooking water  and your pepper and  toss everything
     When the spaghetti is done add some heated  extra virgin oil, the  cheese and the rest of the pepper and mix and toss everything  in the pan. Add  a bit of the cooking liquid if necessary.
     Plate and top with a sprinkle more of pepper and cheese and eat immediately ,when still heat!

  You can replace the pecorino romano with parmesan cheese, that is a little bit milder
