This spaghetti cacio e pepe kugel will become a new family favorite. 

One of the best parts of taking time off from work was getting to attend holiday functions with family and friends. I came up with this dish for a Yom Kippur breakfast; it takes my Jewish heritage and love for Italian food and combines them in a traditional kugel (essentially a noodle casserole) with the flavors of cacio e pepe, a traditional Roman spaghetti dish. The result is a super simple dish packed with tons of pepper and the creaminess of Pecorino, creating an indulgent comfort food from two cultures meeting in the middle.
