Easy Parm + Pepper Pasta

“Cacio e pepe” is the fancy-sounding name of this crazy-simple pasta dish. There are only four ingredients, and it takes just 20 minutes to make. Best of all, it’s like a grown-up version of mac-and-cheese, which should make it easier to convince your kid to try it.

20-30 MINUTES

COOKING TOGETHER

This dinner is simple enough that older kids (10 and up) may be able to make it themselves, especially if they already know how to do things like boil water safely, and most kids can help prepare by gathering ingredients together and grating cheese. Want to get a little extra math practice in? Ask them how much of each ingredient you’d need if you were serving two or three times as many people.
