Ina’s Cacio e Pepe Eggs

Ms. Ina claims she makes cacio e pepe eggs for dinner parties of the ‘breakfast for dinner’ variety. While I find this somewhat hard to believe as this was exceptionally simple, they were a little more special than your usual scramble, so why not. I’ll buy it, like I’m off to buy some more Pecorino.
