which pasta
howllow strands or tubes - spaghetti, bucatini, penne, rigatoni


Think ahead


make sauce up to 1 day in advance. cool completely. cover and refrigerate


Cooks note


this sauce is made in the apennines east of rome for the local festa on 15 of August. THe cheese in the traditional recipe is Pecorino, which has the right piquancy to match the flavor of the chili. If you cannot find Pecorino Romano, you can use Parmesan. The pancetta should be unsmoked.
