A classic Roman dish of pasta served simply with pecorino romano cheese and plenty of freshly ground black pepper, cacio e pepe takes a turn for the lighter and healthier when you substitute carrot and parsnip “noodles” for the traditional spaghetti or vermicelli. And since a spiralizer makes quick work of cutting the vegetables into strands, you can easily cook this simple vegetarian dish any night of the week.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large carrots, peeled and trimmed
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and trimmed
  • 6 Tbs. (3 oz./90 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (4 oz./125 g) grated pecorino romano cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Carrot and Parsnip Cacio e Pepe >

Directions:

Using a spiralizer fitted with the coarse shredder blade, spiralize the carrots, cutting the strands every 3 or 4 rotations. Transfer to a large bowl. Spiralize the parsnips using the same blade and add to the bowl with the carrots. Set aside.

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt butter and cook until it begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the carrots and parsnips. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup (3 oz./90 g) of the pecorino and 2 tsp. pepper. Season with salt, garnish with the remaining 1/4 cup (1 oz./30 g) pecorino and serve immediately. Serves 2 to 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First spiralized recipe I made This was a hit in our house. Even my carrot hating husband really liked it. I couldn't find parsnips so I substituted zucchini and it was fine. I would use less butter next time.
