Giant Maccheroni with a Smoky Pancetta & Tomato Sauce & Pecorino Cheese (gf. avail)

Amatriciana is a traditional sauce hailing from the town of Amatrice, near the mountainous city of Rieti in Lazio. The first written record of this sauce dates back to the late 18th century in the cookbook L’Apicio Moderno, although it is likely that earlier variations of Amatriciana date much further back. During the 19th and 20th centuries, the Amatriciana recipe grew increasingly famous and well loved in Rome, even becoming a Roman “classic” dish, although it was invented elsewhere.

Traditionally, this sauce is made with guanciale (pork cheek), but we substitute pancetta for a deeper, smokier flavour. We cook our pancetta with tomatoes, white wine, and top with Pecorino Romano cheese. Ziti, not dissimilar to giant maccheroni, are the perfect pasta pairing for our smoky Amatriciana sauce, holding the sauce flawlessly.
