My version of Bucatini all’Amatriciana the classic simple pasta recipe from the Lazio region of Italy, not strictly authentic but it follows the main theme.
So apparently it is a big day on Monday and we all need quick dinners right now, Bucatini all’Amatriciana is a classic pasta dish from the Lazio region of Italy and it is seriously tasty… Hard to believe you can pack this many hardcore flavours into a dish in juts 20 minutes whilst cooking everything from scratch! I
have taken the liberty of shifting things around in this dish to represent what I can buy locally! Of course I would love to use guanciale, which is a salt cured pork jowl, but let’s face it for most of us it is just not available, so a nice streaky bacon works well for me.
December has been a frightfully busy month for me, well in comparison to the usual sedate pace of my life anyway and quick dishes have been very much par for the course, hell this Bucatini all’Amatriciana is even the second super quick pasta dish this month, joining a creamy lemony chicken pasta in your line up.
But it is almost over and I can put my feet up, as I wish you a happy Christmas there is nothing more for me to do than let you know there will only be one dish for you next Friday as I will be boozed up for my usual Tuesday publication day… So be good and I hope Santa brings you all that you wish for, to be honest I think he is a fat judgmental git, so am skipping the letter to him this year, and have dropped countless less than subtle hints to my wife instead 😉
