Friday night at our house is usually Italian night. After a long week I don't like to spend too much time on dinner on Fridays so we either have pizza or some type of easy pasta dish. We had a lot of tomato sauce this week so I didn't want anything with a tomato or marinara base. I found a simple recipe in Cook's Illustrated that I wanted to try.
The recipe is simply spaghetti with Pecorino Romano, fresh cracked black pepper, and a little cream. it's very simple and the sauce is fairly thin but it's a great dish. The flavor of the cheese and pepper shines through and lightly coats the pasta. The pasta and sauce took less then 20 minutes which makes for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

I also really like non-tomato pasta sometimes. Light cream and a bit of grated cheese makes a delicious meal.
Oh that's a great idea to having Italian night for the week. I'm always trying to decide what we would have for dinner. A schedule might be great here.
I want to try this out but we don't have those types of cheeses available in the grocery store. We'd have to go to a specialty store (aka expensivo!) to get them. 🙁
this looks simple but good.
I found this via Simple Living with Diane Balch. I linked in a retro steak dish. Have a super week.
This is an awesome plate of Spaghetti! Hope you are having a great holiday week and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
