I'm a little bit Italian, but I certainly can't say much in Italian. That's okay, because this recipe speaks for me. This was one of those, 'What can I do with what I have in the cupboard?' recipes, partially inspired by trying Cacio e Pepe ('Cheese and Pepper') earlier this year. It turned out great and I think you'll think so too! Serve with your favorite Italian main dish and enjoy!
