Sugo all'amatriciana is a traditional Italian pasta sauce based on guanciale (cured pork cheek), Pecorino cheese from Amatrice, and tomato. Originating from the town of Amatrice (in the Province of Rieti, near Rome), the Amatriciana is one of the best-known pasta sauces in present-day Roman and Italian cuisine. It's almost as famous as the Carbonara.

Recently my friend Valentina wrote a perfect carbonara recipe. Now, I will try to do the same thing with the amatriciana.

  • Since I already followed the other Valentina's carbonara recipe and it turned out rather good, I'm going to give this one a try as well. As guanciale is kinda hard to come by in Germany, would it be ok to use pancetta or will I be banned from entering Italy for life if I do? 😋

    • Ahahahahah Sincerely? I like neither the guanciale nor the pancetta. I add speck when I cook for myself... and yes... speck is a blasphemy. But pancetta it's acceptable, although the purists of Italian cuisine disagree. You use pancetta,...

    • Ok, I'll go with either pancetta or speck then. But beware, I still need to visit the Alfa museum in Arese, so you'll have to vouch for me if they won't let me in! 😃

  • Yup, I did it! 😉 No idea how close I got to the original recipe but the result was quite excellent. I made the pasta myself using my trusted pasta maker. Used pre-cut bacon strips and the pecorino probably wasn't from Amatrice but that's as good as it gets in Germany unless you go to an Italian specialty shop and pay through the nose 😊.

  • Tried with onions today. From now on onions are also tolerated in Jan's cuisine 🤣. Actually, it was delicious!
