Cacio e Pepe

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Barilla. As always, I only partner with brands that I love and truly believe in, allowing me to create more quick and easy recipes to get us through the week without breaking the bank. All opinions expressed are my own.

5 ingredients. 20 minutes! Spaghetti, butter, black pepper, heavy cream and Parmesan. That is it! Simple, quick, easy and just so good.

I still can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since my Barilla®-Italy extravaganza.

I think about going back.

Not just for the Pasta World Championship. But, basically, to eat more pasta.

More specifically, cacio e pepe. Because this was basically my diet the entire trip.

(Other than a super quick and desperate burger in Milan. But we’re not going to talk about that.)

No, but really, I don’t even know how to pronounce this dish. I kind of just say CACHIO….and then mumble the rest.

But what I do know is this.

I need this in my life on the daily.

Plus, with 20 minutes from start to finish, you can actually have this every. single. night.

And not just because it’s World Pasta Day today. Even though it’s World Pasta Day every day for me.

Life’s just too short for the kale salad diet.

Cacio e Pepe
