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.

  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.

Insalata calda di manza con carciofi, peperoncino e nociWarm Beef Salad With Artichokes, Chilli & Walnuts

Sardinia is famous for its beef, particularly that of the bue rosso (red cow), which grazes the pastures of the volcanic Montiferru area in central-western Sardinia and is considered by many to provide the finest beef in Italy. For this recipe I have taken the theme of a traditional Sardinian beef salad and have added artichokes and walnuts - which really complement the juicy sides of warm...

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,...

Bruschette con crema d’avocadoAvocado & Smoked Paprika Bruchette

Believe it or not, I tasted my first avocado when I came to England and, contrary to the popularity of ‘tricolore salad’ in Britain, in Italy, this dish just doesn’t exist. On its own, avocado can often be bland but it’s fantastic in salads or with a spicy dish. I wanted to create a recipe with this fruit, as it has an extremely high nutritional value and helps provide many general health benefits....

Gnocchi di zuccaPotato and roasted pumpkin gnocchi

Gnocchi is a firm favourite of the ladies in my life – my wife and my daughter Mia. Rather than just preparing the traditional plain gnocchi with a tomato-and-cheese-based sauce all the time, I wanted to try and create gnocchi that had so much flavour in their own right that a sauce wasn't even needed. This is what I came up with. I have also tried replacing the pumpkin with butternut squash,...

Torta di cioccolato e fragoleChocolate & Fresh Strawberry Cake

Italians from the south don’t bake cakes all that often but my sister Marcella makes this for me whenever I visit and I love it. The combination of moist chocolate cake and fresh strawberries is wonderful and I can never only have one slice; in fact there is always a fight over who gets the last piece (I normally win!) The cake is also fantastico made with raspberries!

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.
