Linguine Alla Amatriciana
Linguine With Cherry Tomatoes, Pancetta And White Wine

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious pork recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my linguine with cherry tomatoes, pancetta and white wine for you to enjoy.

With no doubt, I have to dedicate this recipe to my friend and manager Jeremy Hicks. We have known each other for seven years now and without fail he has to have this pasta dish at least once a week. I actually agree with him, it’s one of my favourites too, because I just love the combination of the onion, pancetta and chilli. If you prefer, you can substitute linguine with spaghetti or tagliatelle.

Step By Step

  1. In a large frying pan, over a medium heat fry the onions in the oil for approx. 3 minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Add in the chilli and the pancetta and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes. Pour in the wine and cook for a further 2 minutes allowing the alcohol to evaporate.
  2. Pour in the tomatoes, stir well and gently simmer for 5 minutes with the lid off, stirring occasionally. Once ready, season with salt, remove from the heat and set to one side.
  3. Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water until al dente. To get the al dente perfect bite, cook the pasta 1 minute less then instructed on the packet.
  4. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and tip back into the same pan where you cooked it.

CuccioloneChocolate Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two cookies – what more do you need from life?! Kids love cucciolone, and in my experience they really enjoy getting involved in making them too. You can use any cookies you like for cucciolone. Here I used choc chip cookies, which worked very well. I’ve also tried the same recipe with peanut and caramel cookies and it was delicious.

A speciality of northern Italy, these delicious biscuits are often served as an Easter treat. I have tried them with red wine and they work well too. If you have any biscuits left over, store them in an airtight container – they will last up to a week. Serve with a dessert wine.

Tagliatelle con Salsicce e PorciniTagliatelle with Sausages, Rosemary and Porcini Mushrooms

I love good-quality sausages so this recipe is definitely in my top ten. My grandfather used to make this dish for me when I was a boy but he used a tomato passata instead of the cream that I have introduced. I wish he could have tasted my version as I know I would have got a huge cuddle for this one – he would have loved it and I know that you will too. For those of you who don’t like mushrooms,...

ZABAIONE AL LIMONCELLO CON FRAGOLEZabaione with Limoncello & Strawberries

Zabaione is an old Venetian dessert traditionally made with Marsala wine (or sometimes vin santo), but here I’ve given it a southern Italian twist by using limoncello – a lemon-flavoured liqueur that is produced mainly in Campania. It’s made from Amalfi lemons, which are famous for their wonderful sweet flavour and fragrance and exceptionally large size. Raspberries are equally delicious with...

Spiedini di pollo con insalata di fagioli e ceciChicken Skewers With Beans & Chickpea Salad

This is a great way to cook chicken – the sweetness of the marmalade combines with the smokiness and spice of the paprika to give a delicious glaze. I usually cook the skewers on a barbecue, but you can char-grill them too. When threading them, it helps to use the natural curved shape of the yellow peppers or onions at either end to keep the other ingredients secure.
