Today we’re making a Keto Cacio E Pepe which simply means pasta with black pepper and cheese. Being on Keto there is no question of real pasta being used and since I’ve done so many dishes with Zucchini I decided to do something different. I had made some meat noodles a while back which I thought would be perfect for this dish. I’ve always loved Italian food and previously I’ve made a Keto Carbonara and also a couple of Zucchini pasta dishes. Anyway enough jibber jabber let’s cook.
Oh, it goes without saying that I’m doing my take on the dish as I know how particular Italians are about their cuisine.
Make it vegetarian
If you aren’t a meat eater or just don’t have the time to make the meat noodles, Zucchini is the answer. You can use spiralized zucchini or spaghetti squash for this dish. In that case you don’t really need any additional stock or water to make the sauce as the zoodles themselves will release plenty of water. That’s pretty much it, everything else remains the same.
