Classic Cacio e Pepe Pasta

Pasta “Cacio e Pepe” (cheese and pepper) is a classic Italian culinary excellence. An old dish, born from the tradition of shepherds who, in their long journeys, brought with them dry pasta, pecorino cheese and pepper. Simple ingredients but rich in taste and nutritional properties.

The beauty and elegance of this dish come from the quality of the ingredients. Excellent Italian durum wheat pasta and aged pecorino PDO make the difference, allowing, once mixed together, and with the right amount of cooking water, the formation of the “cream”, characteristic of the recipe.
Kamut pasta gives a taste even more important to this rich dish, preserving the nutritional properties of Kamut grain.
