So friends! I don’t do this very often, but I’m back today with a very important recipe update that is going to make your life even easier…and even more delicious.
Meet my newly-revised, 4-ingredient, 20-minute, truly-deeply-foolproof cacio e pepe recipe. ♡♡♡
Many of you have made and loved the original cacio e pepe recipe that I posted here on the blog a few years ago.

And in the end, I have good news for us all — the absolute easiest way to make cacio e pepe ended up being the winner, both in terms of taste and reliability!
