Pici all'Amatriciana with a Fresh Tomato & Smoky Pancetta Sauce
£8.00 – £13.60
The first written record of this sauce dates back to the late 18th century, in the cookbook L’Apicio Moderno, although it seems 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 the capital, Roma, even becoming a Roman classic dish, despite being invented elsewhere.
Traditionally, this sauce is made with guanciale (pork cheek), but we substitute pancetta, as this imparts a deeper, smokier flavour. These flavoursome morsels of pancetta are gently fried until crisp, then suspended in a vibrant tomato sauce. To amplify the Amatriciana’s signature meaty flavour, we add both chicken and pork stock, while rosemary, bay leaf and red wine add depth, ensuring an authentic taste of Amatrice.
This simple - but flavour-packed - sauce is served with fresh pici, a pasta shape similar to, but thicker than, spaghetti. Pici originate in Siena, which, alongside Florence, is renowned as one of Tuscany’s jewels.
