Bucatini All'Amatriciana
Recipe type: Pasta
Serves: 6
  • About a ¼ - ½ cup of ½-inch strips of quanciale
  • 1 cayenne pepper, chopped roughly.
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 bottle of passato
  • Lots of fresh ground black pepper
  • Grated Pecorino Romano
  • Kosher Salt
  • Fresh Basil
  • 1 pound of bucatini or spaghetti
  1. In a large pan, saute the guanciale and red pepper - you are looking to render the fat from the guanciale (this will take 5 - 7 minutes). Add the white wine and reduce the sauce - this will take about 5 minutes.. Add the passato and simmer for 40 minutes,
  2. Bring the cooked pasta to the pan with the sauce and combine. Add freshly cracked pepper, cheese (to taste), a dash of very good extra virgin olive oil, and basil.
