Rigatoni Amatraciana Recipe

 Amatraciana is one of Rome's four great pastas.

We first ate Amatraciana in Rome.

Then we made the pasta dish at home with bucatini. We loved it.

Next we made it with rigatoni. We loved it even more.

Beyond pasta, ingredients include canned tomatoes, onion, parsley, red pepper flakes, guanciale and Pecorino Romano.

The first step is to make the sauce.

Don't forget to boil the pasta!

The magic happens when you combine the pasta and sauce in a pan.

Adding pasta water is the final step.

Rigatoni Amataciana tastes great on its own...

and even better with white wine.
