Do you love spaghetti but think it’s too indulgent? Or are you looking for a fresh spin on a classic dish? Whatever the reason, you must try this lighter, flavorful version of the classic pasta. You all know I love my girl Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook Cravings, and this is one of my favorite recipes. Cacio e Pepe is pretty much a no fail, timeless spaghetti dish, but Teigen’s version, which incorporates arugula (or in my case, kale) and the powerful flavor combo of red pepper flakes and lemon, takes the traditional meal to a new, fresh level. Topped with some sharp parmesan, this is guaranteed to be your new favorite. And the best part? Because the sauce is made from pasta water, this spaghetti is super light and healthy, thanks to the dose of greens and citrus. This meal proves that simple sometimes is best.
Trust me, make this now and save yourself the guilt of eating pasta- you won’t need it!
