  • ¼ cup butter, chilled
  • 4 tablespoons grated pecorino romano cheese
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • Salt, to taste
Yield
Serves: 2 to 3
Preparation

Spiralize the ½ pound celery root into a spaghetti shape. 

In a pot of boiling salted water, blanch celery root spaghetti for 2 minutes. Drain, reserving the cooking water, and rinse the “spaghetti” under cold water. 

Using the same pot and the reserved cooking water (about 2 cups), cook the remaining celery root trim until soft, about 10 minutes. Remove and puree in a food processor or blender with cold butter until smooth.

Still using the same pot, combine the celery root spaghetti, warm celery root butter mixture, the cheese and black pepper. Add salt to taste and serve.
