Bucatini all'Amatriciana

Ingredients:
• 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
• 1/4 tsp dried red pepper flakes (or to taste)
• 1 oz Pancetta (or guanciale if available)
• 1 Tbsp butter
• 1 cup chopped tomatoes
• salt
• black pepper
• 4 oz Bucatini (or other long pasta)
• 1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese

Preparation:
Chop the onion fine and dice the Pancetta. Melt the butter in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion and red pepper flakes until the onions are translucent; then add the pancetta and cook until the onions and the meat start to brown. Put in the tomatoes, add salt and pepper to taste, and reduce heat to very low. Simmer it gently while you cook the pasta, stirring occasionally.

Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al denté. Note that Bucatini cooks surprisingly fast, requiring only 7 to 8 minutes.

Drain the pasta and serve it in warmed bowls, topped with the sauce and grated cheese.
