The third typical recipe of Lazio in our list is that of Bucatini all'Amatriciana, or 'matriciana, a typical dish of Amatrice, a town in the province of Rieti. The ingredients of this famous and beloved recipe are: guanciale meat, pecorino cheese and tomato. The original recipe involves the use of spaghetti, but the influence of Roman cuisine has led to their replacement with bucatini.
To prepare this dish you need to cook the pasta in salted water, and in the meantime cut the guanciale meat and brown it in a pat. When the guanciale meat is crunchy it must be removed and set aside. You will then add the sauce in the same pan in which the pillow was cooked and you will cook for 10/15 minutes. Once the bucatini are cooked, add it to the sauce and finally add the pecorino cheese and the previously cooked guanciale meat.
After a few minutes the bucatini all'Amatriciana will be ready to be enjoyed.

The first step for a Carbonara of excellence is to brown the pillow, until it becomes crispy. The second step is to prepare a mixture of egg yolks, Pecorino cheese, salt and pepper. Once the pasta is cooked, proceed by joining in a pan the previously prepared mixture, the pasta and some cooking water. The goal will be to reach a certain level of creaminess of the compound.
