There are a lot of different Italian recipes for pasta and the common ones are Lasagne, Carbonara, Alfredo, Putanesca but there is one that I guess should be in that list and that is the all’Amatriciana. It may be the unknown variety but definitely this one has a unique taste compared to the mentioned dishes as none of those have that “Zing!” in their flavours. Traditionally this pasta is made out of Guanciale (dried pork cheeks), tomato sauce and yes the important ingredient which is the chilli! The name all’Amatriciana came from a place called Amatrice which is a small town near to Rome, this town is also known for good cooks and rumours say that the Papal chefs usually come from this place.
It has a good combination of different flavours like the sweet and sour taste of the tomatoes, the saltiness of dried pork and the hot sensation from the chillies. So if you really like pasta and hot dishes at the same time this will really suit you!
