broccolini with Churn cacio and pepe butter


We all know broccoli goes well with cheese. This simple recipe, with Broccolini and Churn Cacio & Pepe butter, will transform your simple sauteed broccolini into an incredibly addicting dish. 

What you'll need:

  • Broccolini
  • Cacio & Pepe butter
  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup of water
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Parmesan Reggiano or Pecorino (to top the finished dish)



  1. Slice your broccolini into 1" long pieces. Reserve.
  2. Heat olive oil in a sauté pan on medium heat.
  3. When the olive oil starts to shimmer, it's hot enough to throw in your broccolini. Sauté and add in salt and pepper to taste.
  4. After a few minutes, add in about 1/2 cup of water. Keep cooking and stirring.
  5. After about 6-7 minutes of sautéing, spoon in your cacio & pepe butter (I put in about 1 oz per bundle of broccolini). To thicken the sauce, pour in the remaining 1/2 cup of water into the pan as well.
  6. Plate and serve with parmesan and more freshly cracked pepper!
