Here, the classic Easter dish gets a cacio e pepe twist. Cacio e pepe, which means cheese and pepper in Italian, is a traditional and widely loved Roman pasta dish. Translating those flavors to deviled eggs is a stroke of genius, as is mixing the hard-cooked egg yolks with Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. To make this appetizer really sing, be sure to use freshly ground black pepper for a more fragrant kick. Ingredients 12 large eggs 1/2 cup whole-milk Greek-style yogurt 1/4 cup finely grated pecorino romano or parmesan cheese 2 tbsp chives 2 tsp apple cider vinegar 4 tsp freshly ground black pepper 1 tsp kosher salt Directions Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Carefully lower in eggs. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 12 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water; chill until cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes. Peel. (To make ahead, refrigerate unpeeled eggs up to 3 days in advance.) Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop yolks into a medium bowl, leaving whites intact. Mash yolks with a fork. Stir in yogurt, cheese, chives, vinegar, pepper, and salt. Transfer yolk mixture to a large zip-top freezer bag and snip off 1 corner. Pipe yolk mixture into egg halves. Top with more cheese, chives, and pepper.
