Pasta Amatriciana.


You will need:

2 ounces pancetta, cubed
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup of dry white wine
1 cup canned whole tomatoes and juice, crushed
8 ounces bucatini pasta (or spaghetti)
1/2 cup freshly grated pecorino cheese
salt to your taste

First, bring a large pot of well salted water to a boil.

In a large pan, cook the pancetta over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until crisp but not brown. Remove pancetta, but leave the fat in the pan. Add olive oil, onions, cook for 2-3 minutes until the onions are just soft, but not browning.

Add white wine, cook for one minute. Add crushed tomatoes with the juice, then cooked pancetta and cook over medium low heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes.

Remove pasta from boiling water and place in the pan with pancetta and tomatoes. Stir vigorously. Turn off the heat and add grated cheese. Serve immediately.

    Ador aceasta rubrica cu retete si cu siguranta voi incerca aceasta reteta!

    O mica observatie: cred ca ar fi util ca autoarea articolelor sa transforme cantitatile in gr si ml. Banuiesc ca majoritatea cititorilor blogului sunt din Europa, si nu din SUA.

  • Shucks, this looks so good, but I’m a pescetarian! Perhaps some vegetarian/pescetarian choices? (:

  • Cred ca nu as putea sa ma satur de paste niciodata :)))
    Dar cum sa te saturi cand ai atatea variante, atatea combinatii?
    Nu cred ca exista mancare mai versatila decat pastele.
