Grate your parmesan and pecorino romano cheese on the small holes of a box grater or microplane.
1
Melt butter in a skillet. As soon as it melts stir in 2 TBSP freshly cracked black pepper.
2
Add a splash of water so that the noodles don’t stick when you add them.
3
Add the noodles and the water and stir to make sure nothing is stuck.
4
Crank the heat to high.
5
Stir frequently as the water boils vigorously to make sure the noodles cook evenly and don’t stick.
6
When the noodles are al dente and little water remains, stir in the cheese in batches.
7
Add the last handful of cheese and remove from heat.
8
Keep stirring off heat until all the cheese has melted and a silky sauce has formed.

Voila! Serve and enjoy.
