 Put the parmesan in your mixing bowl. Shred 1.5 cups of an additional cheese, which should be pecorino, pecorino Romano, Parmesan reggiano, etc...I used Romano because my grocery store did not have other options.

 Using your wood spoon, mix everything and crush the cheese. The recipe I used called for making everything into a paste, but I think perhaps I crushed everything a little bit too much. Heading forward I would not mix until it became an actual paste.

 Add an lb of spaghetti, linguini or thin linguine to a pot of salted boiling water. When the pasta is ardent drain and immediately add the pasta to the mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly so the pasta is covered entirely. The cheese melts into a coating which covers all pasta. Add salt and reserved pasta water according to your preferences.
