Amatriciana Sauce
Level: Easy
Total: 55 min
Active: 25 min
Yield: 6 to 8 servings


1 tablespoon olive oil
4 ounces pancetta or bacon, thinly sliced
1/2 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 pinches crushed red pepper
One 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, crushed, with juices
Kosher salt
About 1 pound of your favorite pasta
3 tablespoons finely grated Pecorino-Romano or Parmesan, plus more for serving


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook until browned and the fat is rendered, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Add the onions to the skillet and saute until translucent, 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic and a pinch of crushed red pepper (a generous pinch if you like spicy). Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and use a wooden spoon to break up any large pieces. Add the pancetta back to the skillet. Add salt and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Bring to a low simmer, cover and cook until the flavors have melded and the sauce is slightly thickened, 20 to 30 minutes.

While the sauce cooks, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season generously with salt. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Stir 1/2 cup of the pasta water into the sauce (skip this step if using gluten-free pasta), then drain the pasta. Add the pasta and cheese to the sauce and toss to coat. Serve with additional cheese.

  1. When I go to the food network I care about the recipe. Katie thank you for your new series, looking forward to more videos. I also loved the little red riding hood costume on The Kitchen.

  2. I’m so glad you’re doing these videos, Chef! I’ve been a fan for so long. Congratulations to you and your new(ish) hubby ❤️ Do you think you could make an easy date night meal with chicken breast for a video? I love making chicken breast, but I’ve made it about a million different ways and would love a new suggestion.
