Shopping Food List

How to prepare it
The secret to perfecting this dish is adding the right weight of cheese and water used to boiled the pasta to form a creamy sauce.
First of all, Bring a 6-qt. pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook to al dente. Heads up: you'll need to use a ladle of the cooking water (about 1/4 cup) for the sauce right before you drain the pasta.
When the pasta is ready, transfer it in a large bowl adding pecorino cheese, a ladle of cooking water and a lot of pepper . While you are mixing pasta, you have to take care about the sauce. If it looks too dry, you have to add more water, on the other hand if it looks too diluted you have to add more cheese. Place the pasta on a plate and decorate with a light dusting of pepper. Very easy and gorgeous.
