Cavatelli with Nduja & Pecorino

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. Sfoglini Cavatelli
  • 4 tablespoons City Saucery Nduja
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup finely grated pecorino
  • Salt & cracked black pepper

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons of salt and the pasta and cook according to the directions on the package. Set aside 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water while draining pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a pot large enough to hold the pasta.  Add the Nduja, stirring frequently for a couple minutes, until it infuses the oil and toasts a bit. Add the reserved pasta-cooking water and oil and bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes, until the liquid is reduced by about a third.
  3. Add the drained pasta and toss. Off the heat, add the pecorino, parsley and cracked pepper and toss well. Allow the pasta to rest off the heat for 3 minutes for the sauce to be absorbed. Serve, grate a touch more cheese on top.
