Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Cut the Guanciale (9 oz) into thin short strips and put to the side.
step 2
Drizzle a small amount of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (as needed) into a pan and heat it up. Once the oil is warm, add the guanciale to the pan and leave it to crisp slightly, stirring occasionally.
step 3
To bring out the flavour of the guanciale for the Bucatini all’Amatriciana, add White Wine (1/2 cup) and stir it through. Leave it to evaporate.
step 4
Open a can of Tomatoes (2 cups) and pour the contents into a bowl. Using the back of a fork, squash down the large tomatoes and stir.
step 5
Add Ground Black Pepper (to taste) to the amatriciana sauce, along with Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste) and a handful of grated Pecorino Romano Cheese (to taste). Mix it together well.
step 6
Once there is just a small amount of liquid left in the pan, add the sauce mixture and stir.
step 7
Turn the heat down to low and leave the sauce to simmer for 15-20 minutes.
step 8
Boil Water (20 3/4 cups) in a large pot and once ready, add a generous pinch of Rock Salt (to taste) and stir until dissolved. Cook the Bucatini Pasta (9 oz) (according to packet instructions for al dente).
step 9
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 bold, salty flavors. Serve and Enjoy!
