Hello everyone! I’m back! Thanks for being patient with me while I took some time off from the blog world – you will get something good out of this wait, I promise! (*cough* free pattern Friday, anyone?)
On to this recipe – it’s really just Spaghetti with Cheese and Pepper but it sounds fancier in Italian, so that’s what I’m gonna go with. This is a super simple recipe and it further reinforces the fact that sometimes the simple recipes are the best. I spotted this recipe on Smitten Kitchen (where else?) not long ago when I was looking for quick, cheap, healthy, vegetarian recipes. Ok. Ok. Maybe not ‘healthy’ as much as tasty. I figured I didn’t have anything to lose with this recipe, I mean, it has spaghetti, pepper, pecorino romano cheese, butter, pepper and olive oil. All fairly common ingredients in our household. So simple, and yet so delicious! I couldn’t stop eating it and even had some for leftovers the next day (which were good, but not quite as good as it was the day of). The only thing I would note is that you are going to get the best taste from freshly ground black pepper – this is a case of so few ingredients that you want to use the best available to you. I think this is a perfect recipe to have around as a ‘stand-by, just in case’ recipe . . . you know, just in case you don’t feel like cooking a full meal but still don’t want to spend an exorbitant amount of money on take out! Simple, easy and tasty. You can’t beat that!
