INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons whole black peppercorns

14 ounces spaghetti

1 cup Pecorino Romano, grated

DIRECTIONS

1. In a dry frying pan, fry the peppercorns for 1 minute, over high heat. Shake the pan constantly over the heat.


2. Transfer the peppercorns to a mortar and crush, but don’t grind into a powder.


3. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Drain with the help of a strainer or colander, but save 1½ cup of pasta water. Add water to a bowl and let cool for a couple of minutes.


4. Stir in the grated Pecorino cheese into the pasta water, whisking continuously, creating a thick creamy sauce.


5. Add almost all the crushed pepper, but save a little for serving.


6. Combine pasta with the cheese sauce, coating the pasta completely with the sauce. Tip into a serving bowl and sprinkle with some of the saved black pepper. Serve immediately.
