Delicious pasta without a skillet? That’s right, no skillet is needed for this recipe. Today we are going to take our inspiration from Rome where they prepare pasta without a sauce. This is an easy, satisfying dish that you can make on those days when you need simplicity in your life but still want a wallop of flavor.

One pound cooked pasta
Pecorino cheese
Fresh parsley
Extra virgin olive oil
Coarse black pepper to taste

Drain one pound of cooked pasta

In a warm bowl simply toss the cooked pasta with coarsely grated Pecorino cheese a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water and some chopped parsley, drizzle some extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle plenty of coarsely grated black pepper—and I mean plenty!

Serve it piping hot and buon appetito!
