Bucatini All’Amatriciana with Spicy Mozzarella Meatballs

Author: Gaby



  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 oz pancetta - diced
  • 1 onion - diced
  • 4 garlic cloves - minced
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 Romano cheese


  • For the sauce in a large skillet add the olive oil and heat over medium high. Add the pancetta and cook for 6 minutes. Remove the pancetta from the oil and let sit while you continue cooking. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes and then add the garlic, tomatoes, salt, pepper and the cooked pancetta. Simmer, uncovered, over low heat until the sauce thickens, which should take about 15-20 minutes. Stir in the cheese at the end.
