Pasta is one of the most satisfying meals. There are many variations, but in the case of a cheese and pepper dish, wheat pasta brings out their flavours best. Spaghetti would be an ideal choice!

Ingredients for pasta with pepper and cheese

  • About 1.1 pounds of wheat spaghetti
  • A teaspoon of pepper
  • A cup of grated cheese - any variety will do
  • A pinch of salt
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil

Preparing pasta with pepper and cheese

  • Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packaging. Ensure not to add it into the pot until the water starts boiling, otherwise, it could become unappetizing and sticky.
  • Once the pasta is al dente, drain it using a colander. While doing so, running it under cold water can help to prevent pipes from cracking due to the high temperature.
  • Spread olive oil on a pan and heat it up. Once it's warm, add the drained pasta and previously grated cheese to the pan.
  • Stir the pasta and cheese together to avoid sticking and ensure even distribution. Once the cheese has fully melted, take the pan off the heat and serve the dish in a deep plate or bowl.

Your lunch is now ready. Before serving, season the pasta with salt and pepper and give it a gentle stir.
