12 Cheat Meals Personal Trainers Actually Eat

“Cacio e Pepe is a savory, cheesy, and delicious spaghetti dish. I love it because it is simple and tastes amazing. While studying my yoga practice in Italy, I developed a serious craving for fresh pasta. Sometimes after a long week, I like to indulge on Sunday nights and Cacio e Pepe is my go-to. If I am trying a new restaurant and Cacio e Pepe is on the menu, it’s hard to resist! Everything in moderation.”

Here’s how to make it:

Bring water to a boil, season with salt and add spaghetti. After cooking the pasta, remove and set aside, saving some pasta water. Melt 3 tbsp butter in a saucepan, add in 1 tsp cracked pepper. Add 1/2 cup of reserved pasta water to the skillet. Reduce to low heat, adding 3/4 cup parmesan cheese. Remove from heat, add 1/3 cup finely-grated pecorino, and mix until cheese melts. Add in the pasta. You can sprinkle any extra parm on top if you prefer. Serve and enjoy! Yum!”
