DIRECTIONS

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add orecchiette and cook until cooked through with a slight chew. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water before draining pasta and returning to pot. In a food processor, combine Romano cheese, butter, and Four Corners Peppercorns. Slowly add cold water while pulsing until mixture resembles smooth ricotta cheese. Add cheese mixture to pot with orecchiette. Stir to coat pasta and add small amounts of the reserved pasta water to reach a smooth, glossy consistency. Serve immediately, sprinkled with additional cheese and pepper to taste.
