Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Bring a pot of water to boil. Salt (to taste) generously and cook Egg Noodles (6 oz) according to package directions. Before you drain, reserve 1 cup of the pasta water.
Step 2
In a wide frying pan melt Butter (1/4 cup) . Once melted, add the Ground Black Pepper (1 tsp) and about 1/2 cup of the pasta water (reserve the other half).
Step 3
Once the pasta water is boiling, slowly add the Pecorino Romano Cheese (2/3 cup) and Parmesan Cheese (1/4 cup) , stirring continuously until it’s all mixed in. Add a bit more pasta water if the mixture seems too dry - you want the noodles to be coated in the sauce without too much clumping or extra liquid.
Step 4
Taste and adjust the amount of salt if needed. Add the drained pasta into the pan and stir to coat with sauce. If it still seems too sticky, add a bit more butter. Serve in large bowls garnished with additional Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) .
