Bucatini All’Amatriciana | Pasta Amatriciana | Italian Pasta Recipe

INGREDIENTS:
250g Bucatini Pasta
250g guanciale (pig cheek)
Handful of fresh basil
400g Mutti peeled tomatoes
Pecorino Romano (as much as you like)
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
½ glass white wine
Dried chilli (peperoncino)
Rock salt
Pepper
5L water

UTENSILS:
Medium sized deep fry pan
Wooden spoon
Large pot for boiling pasta
Pasta strainer
Knife

METHOD:
1. Cut the guanciale into thin short strips and put to the side.
2. Drizzle a small amount of EVOO into a pan and heat it up.
3. Once the oil is warm, add the guanciale to the pan and leave it to crisp slightly, stirring occasionally.
4. To bring out the flavour of the guanciale for the Bucatini all’Amatriciana, add ½ glass of white wine and stir it through. Leave it to evaporate.
5. Open a can of Mutti peeled tomatoes and pour the contents into a bowl. Using the back of a fork, squash down the large tomatoes and stir.
6. Add grated pepper to the amatriciana sauce, along with dried chilli and a handful of grated pecorino romano. Mix it together well.
7. Once there is just a small amount of liquid left in the pan, add the sauce mixture and stir.
8. Turn the heat down to low and leave the sauce to simmer for 15-20 minutes.
9. Boil 5L of water in a large pot and once ready, add a generous pinch of rock salt and stir until dissolved.
10. Cook the Bucatini pasta (according to packet instructions for al dente).
11. Once the pasta is ready, strain it well and add it to the pan. Using a wooden spoon, smother the sauce all over the pasta so it is infused with the bold, salty flavours.

HOW TO SERVE:
1. Serve a portion of the Bucatini all’Amatriciana pasta in the centre of a coloured plate.

VINCENZO’S PLATE TIP: If you have a large fork, twirl pasta onto it tightly and gently release it onto a plan white plate so it doesn’t lose its form.

2. Make sure there is enough guanciale on the plate – if not, add more! – and sprinkle with a very generous amount of grated Pecorino Romano cheese.
