  • Yield: 3 servings 1x


One of the Italian classic pastas. Only takes a handful of ingredients. Easy, fast and delicious.


  • 300g bucatini pasta (or spaghetti)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (optional)
  • 150g guanciale (or pancetta)
  • 400g of San Marzano tomatoes (canned)
  • 1 garlic (whole, just to flavor fat)
  • 100g pecorino romano


  1. Heat olive oil in a pan, add diced guanciale and one clove of garlic to flavor up the oil. Cook until brown.
  2. Meanwhile, cook your pasta in a pot of generously salted boiling water for about 8 minutes, or until al dente.
  3. Remove the garlic and add crushed tomatoes into the pan. Let it simmer for about 8 minutes.
  4. Place the pasta straight from the hot boiling water into the sauce. Add pecorino romano cheese and give it a good stir.
  5. Serve with some more pecorino romano and fresh basil.


You can add one whole garlic to the pan with pancetta just to flavor the fat.
