Cacio E Pepe Pasta bake recipe

The weather is changing and I feel spring is in the air and just around the corner. This cacio e pepe pasta bake is the perfect transition dish. Its comfort food with a little zesty flavor and a spring staple, PEAS.

I don’t know about anyone else but I love peas with my pasta, especially a white sauce pasta.

Cacio E Pepe is the simplest but most delicious pasta, that truly doesn’t need any additions or changes. But I thought I would elevate this simple dish for spring.

Cacio E Pepe Pasta

Cacio E Peper pasta bake with a spring twist.


1 pkg bucatini pasta

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 almond milk

1 cup shredded gruyere/swiss

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

1 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

3 Eggs

1 1/4 cup frozen peas – thawed

4 cloves grated garlic

1 lemon – zested

2 tsp freshly grated black pepper

Pinch of Salt


Step 1:

Soften a 1/2 stick of butter and using a springform pan or a baking dish, grease the dish and set aside.

Step 2:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Step 3:

Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Once boiled add your pasta and cook 1 minute less than the recommended time for al dente as directed on the box.

Step 4:

In a large mixing bowl add your milk, 1 cup shredded gruyere/swiss cheese, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, and 1 cup parmesan. ( the 1/4 will be saved to top with)

Step 5:

Crack your 3 eggs, add your spices, peas, grate your garlic, zest your lemon and using a wooden spoon mix it all together.

Step 6:

Drain your pasta into a strainer and rinse quickly with cold water (you don’t want the eggs to scramble or curdle from the hot pasta).

Step 7:

Add your pasta to the sauce and toss until pasta is coated.

Step 8:

Add the mixture to your baking dish. Place the baking dish on a sheet pan, this helps collect any liquid that bubbles over.

Step 9:

Bake 30-35 minutes until golden brown. 33 minutes seemed to be my perfect time.

Step 10:

Let the dish cool for 10 minutes, then cut and serve.

Step 11:

Top with Red Pepper Flake and a drizzle of olive oil.

Step 12:
