Tis' the season for all things butternut squash. Disclaimer, I didn't actually make stacks with that many layers, the pic is two pieces on top of one another. Just tryin' to keep it real with ya! Also, you could sub slices of squash or zucchini if you're going for a low-carb or gluten free version.
Also, I did not start with actual whole squashes. My local grocery store (Heinen's) sells squash that's already been peeled and cubed, THANK GOD - and I'm pretty sure it was more than just one squash because there was a lot. It's kind of a b*tch to peel and cube one of those things - definitely something you have to be in the mood to do.
I was thinking about adding in a layer of kale or spinach, but realized that I forgot to grab it at the store. I feel like it would probably be pretty good with some sauteed kale mixed in. If you want to do more with this recipe and add in some color, I would try that!

When it comes to pasta, sometimes a few ingredients is all ya need.
There's a ton of controversy over the way this dish is supposed to be made so I will start of by saying that this is my personal version and the way that I prefer to eat cacio e pepe! I've gotten tons of comments about how it's wrong that I use butter but, I love butter and that doesn't feel wrong to me. I will say that it's super clutch to use fresh cracked black pepper - I usually buy whole black peppercorns and crack them myself with the edge of a large knife or mortar and pestle.
