INGREDIENTS FOR CACIO e PEPE (VEGAN):
- Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
- Dairy-Free Parmesan Cheese (get a nut-free one if you have alllergies or choose any cheese of choice)
KITCHEN EQUIPMENT I USED:
- In a large non-stick pan, toast the black pepper over medium heat, about 1-2 mins. Remove and set aside.
- Add 5 cups of water to the pan (yes pan), along with some salt and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until it is just shy of being al dente, about 7-9 mins.
- Add vegan cheese of choice, and peppercorns to the pan, and mix in the heat, until a creamy sauce forms.
- Serve immediately, on a hot plate, sprinkled with additional pepper, vegan cheese, and salt to taste.
