|Amatriciana: Pancetta, Onions, (smuggled-in) Aged Pecorino di Fossa, |
Tomatoes, Bay leaf, homemade roasted Chili Powder
Typically, the classic, quintessential Roman plate, Amatriciana, is made with bucatini pasta. But this time we went out on a limb and used "Paccheri", a larger-than rigatoni, smooth tube-like pasta - fantastic choice! The sugo (sauce) filled the tubes nicely, allowing a generous mouthful.
