Zucchini Noodle Cacio e Pepe Recipe

November 7, 2016

I returned home from Rome this summer inspired by the classic pasta dish Cacio e Pepe (“cheese and pepper”). This healthy twist features zucchini noodles as the base for a simple combination of ingredients like sharp, salty sheep’s milk cheese and bright and spicy freshly ground pepper. This dish is minimal, but magical.

Zucchini Noodle Cacio e Pepe

Ingredients

5 small zucchini, ends cut off
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup finely grated pecorino cheese cheese
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Use a spiralizer to create long, thin zucchini noodles.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and sauté zucchini noodles 2 minutes, until slightly tender. Off the heat, stir in Pecorino cheese and black pepper until all the noodles are fully coated. Serve immediately.
