Cacio e Pepe e Fagioli and Stuff

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

  2. Stir Parmesan cheese and black pepper into pea mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, until creamy and thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

I sauteed a tablespoon of diced onion and small sprig of rosemary in butter, added a little chicken stock and wine first then the beans and peas and cooked as directed. Delizioso!

Made this recipe tonight as written. Very good dish. I ended up putting more pepper on it when at the dining table so will probably double the pepper when cooking next time. Thanks for the recipe

This would be a good side dish to go along with a main of choice. If I were to make this again I will saute some onions to add to the mixture and garnish with crispy bacon bits.
