"Only three ingredients! Sounds easy, but the simplest dishes with the least ingredients are sometimes known to be the most difficult. With this recipe, the quality of the products is crucial. You should definitely try it with fresh pasta and high quality Pecorino Romano from the Italian deli or specialty shop. The result will be heavenly."
