Bucatini all'Amatriciana is a must of Roman cuisine, this condiment is one of the best known and loved of Italian cuisine but it is also one of the most discussed recipes starting from the name to finish with the ingredients used to make it. It seems to be the ancestor of another typical dish, the gricia and according to tradition, the name derives from Amatrice, a small town in the upper Lazio that has always boasted the authorship of the real pasta all'amatriciana which over time has instead become one of the typical dishes of the trattorias in Rome. The Romans who imported this recipe from the Amatrician shepherds call this sauce Matriciana since this sauce actually got its name from a stamp that was put on the pig's cheek.
