A dinner that 's almost as easy as it is delicious! This simple and classic pasta dish will have everyone rushing to the table.
4 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin olive oil
1 lb Colavita Bucatini
2 tbsp butter
8 oz. Pecorino Romano cheese, finely grated
3 tbsp finely ground black pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Reserved pasta water (about a cup)
1Cook spaghetti in well-salted boiling water in a large, wide-bottomed pot. Drain spaghetti, reserving 1½ cups of pasta cooking water.
2Dry out your pot.
3In the dried pot, heat the Colavita olive oil over high heat.
4Add the drained pasta and ¾ cup of reserved pasta water.
5Watch out as the pot is very hot and will make the water splatter around a bit.
6Add butter, cheese, ground pepper and cayenne and toss together with tongs. Taste, adding more pasta water, cheese, pepper or salt to taste. Be careful adding salt as Pecorino is a salty cheese.
7Serve immediately, sprinkling with reserved cheese and an extra grind or two of black pepper.
