8 ounces pasta
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup heavy cream
4 ounces freshly grated parmesan
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions for al dente; reserve 1 cup water and drain well.

Melt better in a large skillet over medium heat. Add black pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in heavy cream and 3/4 cups reserved water; bring to a simmer. Stir in Parmesan until slightly thickened, about 2-4 minutes.

Stir in pasta and gently toss to combine. If the mixture is too thick, add more water as needed until desired consistency is reached.

Serve immediately.
