Linguine Amatriciana

Posted in Fast, Paste by Highway on Ianuarie 14, 2010

Amatriciana is a sauce made with tomatoes, pecorino and bacon, usually served with spaghetti or bucatini. It’s an old recipe from Lazio and it became popular in the 19th century when poor emigrants from Italy made it known in the new regions were they established. Here I used linguine instead, a long, flat and narrow pasta (originally from Campania) and the one that Doc prefers. So, because I was in the mood of spoiling her again, I came up with this recipe which I remember well from my living in Italy.

You need to start by slicing the onion and cutting the bacon into narrow pieces. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and fry the bacon on low heat. Once the bacon starts to become slightly crispy on the edges, add the onion. Cook on a low heat until the onions start to caramelise. That should take you around 15 minutes. (Though originally this recipe doesn’t contain mushrooms, here I used three medium-sized champignons, cut in small pieces, which I mixed with the onions and bacon after 10 minutes.)

Add chopped tomatoes or tomatoes sauce and a teaspoon of sugar and leave the sauce to thicken on a low to medium heat for another 15-20 minutes.

When the sauce is ready, what is left for you to do is pur it over pasta, then season it all with freshly grinned black pepper, fresh basil leaves and grated pecorino or parmesan.

You’ll love it.
