Pasta all'Amatriciana

Like all classic Italian pasta dishes, the origin of all’Amatriciana is up for debate. But we have big amore for this Roman take with tomato-y sauce studded with pancetta, onion, and a pinch of heat.

*Already made for you! 

Pantry items:

  • Olive Oil


    1) Bring a large pot of salted water (it should taste like the sea!) to a robust boil.

    2) Peel and mince half the onion and set aside.

    3) Heat about 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add cubed pancetta and a pinch of chili flakes (trust your own heat tolerance!) and sauté until golden. Add onion to the pan and cook until translucent, scraping up any browned bits.

    4) Add the pomodoro sauce to the pan and reduce heat to a simmer.

    5) Gently loosen the bucatini by shaking it to discard any excess semolina that may fall off, then add pasta to the boiling water. This is fresh, artisanal pasta so it will cook in only 3-4 minutes for al dente (a slight chewy bite in the middle).

    6) While the pasta cooks, quickly toss together the salad mix with marinated artichokes and pickled red onions. Dress with your very best olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

    7) When the pasta is cooked through, transfer it into the sauce, along with
    ¼ cup of the pasta water. Toss the pasta in the sauce until well coated.

    8) To serve, portion the pasta onto plates with a generous sprinkle of
    parmesan, and salad on the side. Enjoy!
