Spaghetti, Roman-style

Photo by:

Quick to prepare and cook, this is a great meal when time is short.

Yield: 4 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 oz (175g) pancetta, cut into thin strips
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • One 28 oz (794g) can chopped tomatoes
  • Salt and crushed hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb (450g) dried spaghetti
  • ½ cup freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese, plus more for serving

Directions

 

 

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the pancetta and continue cooking, stirring often, for 5 minutes, or until the pancetta is lightly browned.

2. Add the wine and cook about 5 minutes, or until it evaporates by half. Stir in the tomatoes and their juices, reduce the heat to low, and simmer briskly for 15 minutes, or until thickened. Season with salt and red pepper flakes.

3. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the spaghetti, and cook according to the package instructions, or until the pasta is al dente. Drain the spaghetti well. Add to the sauce and stir well. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Serve hot, with additional cheese passed on the side.

Notes

Steps 1 and 2 can be done a day in advance; reheat before mixing with the pasta.
