Pasta with cheese and pepper (Cacio e pepe) is a classic Roman dish. One of the oldest pastes. It was born not as a result of any gastronomic delights, but out of necessity. Roman shepherds, during long runs of flocks, took with them only those products that could be stored for a long time. So they always had macaroni, pepper, and hard cheese. It is from these three ingredients (plus a little sleight of hand) that the amazing Cacio e pepe is prepared.

In the original – Spaghetti alla puttanesca. As you can see, the name comes from the Italian puttana, which is understandable even without translation. There are several versions of the origin of this name. The first version says that this paste is made from simple ingredients that are always at hand. In other words, like a prostitute, she is always able to satisfy her hunger. The second version says that prostitutes in Naples lured hungry sailors not only with their bodies, but also with this incredibly fragrant paste.

The essence of all versions comes down to one thing: Spaghetti alla puttanesca – a flavorful, delicious pasta that can be prepared in minutes.
