Spaghetti or bucatini all'amatriciana are perhaps the most famous recipe of italian cuisine in the world.
The amatriciana sauce derive her name from the city of Amatrice in the province of Rieti (Lazio).
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 350 g spaghetti
- 400 g of tomato sauce
- 100 g of bacon
- 60 g pecorino cheese
- Dry white wine
Cut the bacon into cubes and brown it with the crushed red pepper. Be careful not to fry the bacon too otherwise it becomes dry and hard. Sprinkle with white wine and let it drain thoroughly, then add the tomato sauce and salt.
Meanwhile, cook spaghetti al dente in salted water, pour the sauce into the pan making it jump (or mixed) with grated pecorino.
Tradition calls for cooking the spaghetti or bucatini all'amatriciana strictly without the onion, but I think it goes well and cut into julienne fry made with the bacon.
