I crave healthy, fresh pasta every so often…this looks amazing. I might add sun dried tomatoes to it…
10 ounces whole wheat capellini
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
10 Tbsp freshly grated pecorino Romano
1 Tbsp black peppercorns coarsely ground
Lemon Juice (optional)
Boil water for the pasta; once it’s come to a boil, add salt then the pasta and cook according to the instructions on the package. Just before you drain it, remove a coffee cupful of its cooking water.
Drain the pasta and add the butter to the hot pan. Then tip in the capellini and toss well, dribbling in a tablespoonful of cooking liquid as you do so. Now add the grated pecorino and coarse black pepper and toss well in the residual heat of the pan–adding a little more pasta-cooking liquid if you need the lubrication–before tipping into warmed bowls.
