Amatriciana is a traditional Italian pasta sauce based on bacon and tomato. It's simple to throw together and has very assertive flavours.
2 rashers bacon, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes
1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
- Cook the diced bacon in a saucepan until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain all but two tablespoons of the fat from the pan.
- Add the onions and cook about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and chilli flakes; cook 30 seconds. Add the tinned tomatoes, undrained, and cook 10 minutes, breaking up the tomatoes.
- Meanwhile, cook the linguine in boiling salted water until al dente. Drain.
- Stir the basil into the sauce and toss with the pasta. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
Very quick and easy pasta to make.
