Bucatini all' Amatriciana

Often served in Rome's trattorias, this dish takes its name from Amatrice, a town northeast of the capital. The classic preparation calls for making a sauce of tomatoes, onion and pancetta, and then pairing it with bucatini, a thick spaghetti-like noodle with a hole through the middle. Perciatelli is a very similar but slightly thinner noodle.

Easy weekday meal!

It's very easy to make with the ingredients we usually have at home. I added some garlic to the sauce as we love garlic.
I'll add some more red pepper flakes next time for more heat.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Will Make Again

Perfect weekday meal

My husband is not a fan of pasta but loves this recipe. I make double the sauce for the amount of pasta; I then use a little over half to toss with the pasta and serve the rest for those you want to add a bit more. If you can't find the pasta at your local store, order it online. I break the pasta in half before cooking to ease the eating since the pasta is thick. The pecorrini chees is a perfect topping and is critical.
You can make the sauch in advance and rewarm when you are boiling the pasta. The sauce is not like a spaghetti sauce that is heavy and drowns the pasta. This is so much better.

Very easy to make on weeknight, add more pepper flakes for an extra kick if desired.
