Bucatini Amatriciana

I remember eating big bowls of this dish with my father and brother Carlo. It's one of my favorite pastas that was created in the town of A'Matrice in the Lazio region. This mixture of a few basic ingredients creates the complex flavor that keeps you coming back for more and scooping up the sauce with your bread. I suggest a Chianti with Matriciana.
