Which is Angel Hair with Cheese and Pepper. Okay, it’s SUPPOSED to be spaghetti, but capellini is a very fine spaghetti so it counts!!

I have always liked the delicate nature of capellini and felt it would be perfect with the simple ingredients for this pasta: pecorino cheese, salt, pepper, Olive Oil. How much simpler can a pasta dish be. I admit I did have a minor ‘fail’. Mixed with pasta water the cheese is supposed to form a paste but mine just sat there until I added the pasta and then it turned into swirls, gobs, and pieces of cheese.

Didn’t hurt the flavor at all, but it just didn’t look very pretty.

You can find this simple pasta on page 70 of Hazan’s 30 Minute Pastas.
