Amatriciana

A bold take on the classic marinara with a little heat and a little meat.
Tired of the same old spaghetti and sauce? Enter it’s more flavorful, powerful relative. This classic Roman pasta sauce gets its depth from pancetta, the cured, non-smoked Italian bacon, and a kick of heat from chili flake. One taste and you’ll never want another red sauce again.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil and salt to taste. Add pasta and cook until 1-2 minutes from fully cooked.
  2. While pasta is cooking, cook pancetta in a separate pan over medium-low heat until it renders most of its fat and crisps. Remove meat from pan, leaving fat behind in the pan. Add sliced onions to rendered fat and sauté over medium heat until translucent. Add meat back in and add chili flakes. Stir gently and leave on low heat.
  3. Drain pasta, reserving ½ cup of the pasta water.
  4. Return pasta to large pan, add pecorino, and reserved ¼ cup pasta water. Stir vigorously. Add tomatoes and all contents of pancetta/onion pan. Continue stirring until texture is cohesive, adding more pasta water as needed.
  5. Add olive oil and butter to pan and stir.
  6. Plate and serve immediately, finishing with additional pecorino
