Bucatini Alla Amatriciana is a traditional pasta dish that originates from the Lazio region and is a very popular dish with Romans. Bucatini itself is a type of pasta very similar to spaghetti but slightly thicker and with a hole running throughout, 'buco' meaning 'hole' in Italian. The Amatriciana sauce is a red, tomato based sauce that is named after the town of Amatrice in Lazio. It is a quick dish to make, approximately 40 minutes in total, including preparation and cooking. Other ingredients include guanciale (a cured pork cheek) and grated pecorino cheese which are lightly fried in some authentic Italian olive oil. Variations of the recipe can also include onion, garlic, black pepper and to spice it up a bit, chili pepper. This pasta dish can be found in most authentic Roman restaurants and is usually served as a 'primo', i.e. a first course dish.
