There are so many different kinds of italian pasta sauces. I find it very interesting that all regions in Italy have their own typical pasta sauce receipe. One of my favourite italian pasta sauce receipe is Pasta Amatriciana (or L’amatriciana or Matriciana) . Amatrice is a city in the province of Rieti, north east of Rome.
The traditional pasta sauce from this region is a tomato sauce with bacon, white wine, onions and chili. The pasta sauce is usually served with Bucatini – a tubed spaghetti-like pasta.
Pasta Amatriciana is something you find on the menu of every good Italian restaurant and it is interesting to see and taste the slight receipe variations. When we made this pasta on the weekend I felt like being in Italy.
