#39 :: Cacio e Pepe Potatoes

I'm learning so many new ways to make potatoes! Before there was fried, baked or mashed. That's it. Now I have options! There are red potatoes, gold potatoes, baking potatoes, sweet potatoes.....I'm incorporating flavors like bacon, garlic, cheese, pepper, or onions.... We might never eat a potato the same way again!


  • 2 pounds baby Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or milk
  • 1 tub grated Pecorino Romano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Quarter baby potatoes and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil then salt water and cook until tender, about 12 minutes.

When the potatoes are tender, drain and return to the hot pot to dry them out a little. Mash the potatoes with 1/2 cup stock or milk, 1/2 to 2/3 cup grated Romano cheese, a few generous handfuls, lots of black pepper and a little salt.

Makes 4 servings.
