The Festival of Pasta
One of the best examples of a simple yet fantastically tasty local dish is Bucatini all'amatriciana, a historic dish that first originated in Amatrice. In Rome, amatriciana is made with bucatini: thick, spaghetti-shaped tubes, which, in this recipe, are covered with a rich tomato sauce made with pork cheek (guanciale), pecorino and usually also onion, garlic and chilli.
Another Roman pasta dish that cannot be omitted is Spaghetti cacio e pepe. This is basically like macaroni cheese with a continental makeover. 'Cacio' is the ever-prevalent pecorino romano, while 'pepe' is pepper – these are the two ingredients that make this concoction mouth-watering.
