Casarecci di Calabria pasta kit – Cacio e Pepe, makes an excellent gift. It consists of 250g of pasta, 90g of cacio & pepe sauce and a wooden fork. Cacio e Pepe is a traditional Roman pasta sauce made simply from seasoned Pecorino cheese and black pepper. Typical of the Roman ‘Cucina Povera’, cacio e pepe was a staple dish traditionally eaten by shepherds who would take a piece of cheese, some pepper and some dried pasta into the fields whilst out herding for days. It was an easy and complete energy-giving meal for them to prepare. Typically eaten with Spaghetti or Linguine this is one of the most famous Roman pasta dishes along with Carbonara.
