1. Have all of your utensils and ingredients all set to go, particularly your diners. This is a recipe that seems basic, however the emulsification of the cheese and starchy pasta water can be more difficult to attain than you think and as soon as it’s prepared, you need to eat it or it will begin to divide.2.
In a big pot put your pasta water on to boil with the salt and semolina flour included. When boiling, include the pasta and simultaneously begin to toast the pepper in a pan big enough to hold your cooked pasta.3.
When the pasta is simply under al dente, drain, saving the water. Return the pasta to the pot to keep warm.4.
Add 650ml of the reserved pasta water to the pepper together with the olive oil (it will bubble strongly).5.
Decrease pepper mix by about two-thirds.6.
Working quickly, include the prepared pasta, then the pecorino and stir rapidly up until the cheese and liquid emulsifies into a sauce that coats the strands– you may need a little additional pasta water. Serve instantly.
