Spaghetti all’Amatriciana

  • Author: Silvana
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 portions


Delicious and quick to make, spaghetti all’ Amatriciana is a must have recipe for all Italian food lovers


  • 350 gr spaghetti or bucatini

  • 130 gr guanciale or pancetta

  • 400 gr tomato passata or tinned chopped tomatoes

  • 40 gr Pecorino Romano (grated)

  • Salt (to taste)


  1. Cut the guanciale into thin strips or small cubes. Heat a non-stick frying pan, then add the meat and cook until lightly golden. No need to add any oil, as the fat from the guanciale is enough.
  2. Add the tomatoes and let simmer for 15 minutes. Season carefully, as the guanciale is already very salty.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghetti (or bucatini) and cook according to the instruction on the package. Once cooked, drain well and add to the Amatriciana sauce. Mix well.
  4. Sautee the pasta for a minute. Sprinkle with grated pecorino cheese and serve immediately.


Enjoy your spaghetti all’Amatriciana with a glass of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
