Cacio e Pepe -- If one pasta dish exemplifies the complexity of pan sauce precision, it's cacio e pepe (literally, cheese and pepper). The minimalist recipe calls for only a few ingredients and doesn't even include garlic. It's a simple standard by which cooks are measured, yet no two chefs agree on how to do it right.

Cacio e Pepe Pasta - noodles, butter, cheese and pepper. Cacio e Pepe is my budget-friendly, big-flavored favorite that’s not so great for the skinny jeans but unbeatable for the wallet. My sister first introduced me to this dish during dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago, Davanti Enoteca. One taste, and I, nor my food budget, have ever looked back.
