Cacio e Pepe
This vegan Cacio e Pepe recipe has all the things the traditional cheesy Roman pasta dish has. It is uber creamy, cheesy & comforting.
I find it hard to write how good this is. You just have to try it!
-1/2 lb Spaghetti
-1/2 C Vegan Cashew Parmesan ( find the recipe here!)
-1/2 tspn fresh ground Pepper
-Red Chili flakes (optional
-1/2 Reserved pasta water
Cook Pasta according to package instructions. *important* save 1/2 c pasta water before you strain your pasta.
Leaving your noodles aside, drizzle 2-3 tablespoons Olive Oil in your pasta pot. Add noodles & toss. Add Cashew Parmesan + Black Pepper & some pasta water and toss well. More pasta water = creamier pasta. Play with the consistency till you get it to your liking & serve immediately.
Top with more cheese, pepper & chili flakes if you like it spicy.
Pro Tip: Add some sauteed veggies to this to take it up a notch! I want to try it with Spinach & Peas & Tomato personally.
