Bucatini all'Amatriciana

I grew up with pasta. I mean obviously, I am indeed Italian. But I won't lie, sometimes pasta can get boring for me. Gasp! I know, I know, I admitted it. Which is why I love when pasta dishes have a different flair to it!

Don't get me wrong, I would never trade our pasta with fresh homemade tomato sauce... but sometimes I want something a little more extra. 

So here is my Papa's (he has his own youtube cooking show now: Pasta Fazool!) Bucatini all'Amatriciana. He whipped it up one night for his episode and of course, I snagged the recipe. 

It's super simple with lots of flavor and will truly wow your next dinner guests ;) Buon Appetito! 

1 lb Bucatini pasta
 2oz extra virgin olive oil
 1 med onion chopped
 6 oz smoked bacon chopped
 2-3 oz of you favorite white wine
 12oz can of peeled tomato (San Marzano) preferred
 Salt and chili pepper to taste
Pecorino Romano and Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese

let's make it 

1.  Pour 2 oz. of extra virgin olive oil in a pan over medium heat. 

2. Chop up one medium onion and place it in the pan with the oil. Stir frequently to not burn. 

3. Chop up about 6 oz. of bacon and place it in the pan with onions. Let cook and sizzle until light brown. 

4. Add the peeled and squished tomato sauce. Let ingredients cook and simmer. Stir occasionally.  

5. Add the white wine, chili pepper, and salt. Stir and cook for around 20 minutes. 

6. Boil Bucatini pasta in another pot as per box instructions (al dente preferred. ) 

7. Once pasta and sauce are cooked, drain the Bucatini. 

8. Scoop enough sauce to pour over Bucatini pasta and mix it well.

9. Before serving each dish, add another spoonful of sauce over the pasta.
