No-Skillet Pasta Sauce

In Rome they call it cacio e pepe. Drain one pound of cooked pasta, then in a warm bowl toss the pasta with a coarsely grated pecorino cheese and a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water. Drizzle some extra-virgin olive oil over the pasta and sprinkle plenty of coarsely grated black pepper on top. Serve it piping hot for an easy, satisfying dish that you can make on those days when you need a little comfort food.
