It's so simple. Just a mess of al dente spaghetti, cracked pepper, and cheese. However with just three basic ingredients, a thing of beauty can be made. Cacio e pepe is a traditional Roman dish that is replicated throughout Manhattan's restaurants ... and at one very fancy supermarket.

Head to Flatiron's Italian-foodstuff mecca, Eataly, for a Batali-Bastianich bowl of deliciousness. Inside the store are multiple mini-restaurants, including La Pasta. Their $14 bowl of spaghetti Cacio e Pepe is perfect at lunch or dinner, even for brunch on the weekend. No frills, no gimmicks, and no gourmet embellishments, it's a straightforward dish that will satisfy your pasta cravings. And cheese cravings.
