Step 1
Boil the Water (20 3/4 cups) on the stove in a large pot.
Step 2
Add 2/3 of the Pecorino Romano Cheese (1 2/3 cups) to a bowl, along with 2 tablespoons of hot water and a generous splash of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (to taste) . Stir well using a whisk or a spatula.
Step 3
Once the mix has thickened, add another 2 tablespoons of hot water. Mix it again and sprinkle some Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
Step 4
Add the Fresh Pasta (2 1/3 cups) to the boiling water and cook until it is al dente.
Step 5
While the pasta is cooking, add one more tablespoon of hot pasta water pot to the creamy mixture and whisk it through so it becomes smoother and creamier.
Step 6
Strain the pasta and add it to the bowl. Add the rest of the Pecorino Romano Cheese (3/4 cup) , a generous sprinkle of pepper, a small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and finally, just a touch of water. Mix it really well so the cream covers each strand of pasta.
Step 7
Using a ladle, roll some spaghetti around a fork and serve with additional Pecorino Romano and Pepper. Enjoy!
