Bucatini alla Matriciana – The Roman way

Recipe:  Serves four

1 pound of “Bucatini” ( you can use any type of pasta )

1/3 Pound of diced “guanciale” or very lean salt pork or bacon

2 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, I use the “San Giugliano” for all my cooking

½ Teaspoon of red pepper or more if you like spicy

1 4 oz glass of white wine

½ large Onion sliced thin

½ can of “Scalfani” tomatoes puree or half pound of your favorites tomatoes

3 cups of water

200 g of grated Pecorino or Parmigiano, I use the Parmigiano

Salt to taste

Grease the frying pan with the oil and sauté the diced bacon with onion and red pepper.

Bring all ingredients to a golden color. Pour the wine and after 2 or 3 minutes add tomatoes and water mixing all well. Let all boil for 10 minutes a medium flame.

In the mean time cook the pasta al dente and drain. (Don’t forget to salt the water)

Place the pasta in the frying pan with sauce mixing very well for a minute while cooking.

Remove from flame add the cheese, mix well and serve.

If you don’t have a large frying pan, cook the pasta to taste, drain, place in a serving dish,

add the sauce and mix in the cheese well.

A salad, Italian bread, a glass of Chianti and dinner is served in 20 minutes!

Buon Appetito!
