3.           Put the spaghetti in the boiling water and cook them al dente (2minutes less than suggested cooking time)…making sure to keep some of the cooking water.

4.           Strain the pasta, add the hot cooking water to the grated pecorino and make a cream/paste with it.

5.           In a pan add the cracked pepper then pour in the Pasta; turn on the heat low and add a ladle of cooking water to the pasta, finishing it with the cracked pepper…..once the water has gone, add the pecorino cream, keep mixing with the help of a tongue to make sure the Cacio e Pepe is nice and creamy.
