No Yolks® No-Fail One-Pan Cacio e Pepe Noodles

This recipe is an easy, no-fail take on a classic Roman dish, Cacio e Pepe, which simply means “Cheese and Pepper”. The starchy pasta water becomes the base of the rich creamy sauce, and creating a cheese paste allows it to melt evenly on the noodles without sticking to the bottom of the pot.

> 1 pkg (12 oz) NO YOLKS® Extra Broad Noodles
> 1 tsp salt

> 1 1/2 tsp finely ground black pepper

Combine noodles, water and salt in large nonstick skillet on high heat; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; continue to cook 6 to 7 minutes, until noodles are slightly firm and some starchy water remains, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat.
Spoon 1/2 cup noodle cooking water in small bowl; add oil. Stir in cheese and pepper to form a paste. Add to noodles in skillet; stir well until evenly coated. Serve immediately.
