Bucatini all'Amatriciana
Rating: Unrated
This dish originated in a hill town outside Rome called Amatrice. Authentic bucatini all'amatriciana is made with chewy bucatini pasta (a type of thicker, hollow spaghetti), tossed with a rich sauce made from tomatoes, caramelized onion, dried chile pepper, and plenty of deeply savory cured guanciale. The result is one of the most savory bowls of pasta to ever come out of Italy. Plus:  Pasta Recipes and Tips
