Cacio e Pepe

3 Steps

  • Step 1

    Boil a large pot of water. Salt liberally and cook gnocchi until they float to the top. Reserve pasta water.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a frying pan set over medium-high heat, add pepper so it toasts and becomes aromatic. Then add pasta water. Add cooking cream and black truffle paste to pan.

  • Step 3

    Remove gnocchi from boiling water into frying pan of olive oil and pepper. Remove from heat, add butter and cheese. Slowly incorporate by stirring or moving the pan so the gnocchi becomes encased in a creamy sauce. Adjust consistency with adding more pasta water or cheese.
