    dolcetta46's Note:

    This is one of the most popular Roman pasta dishes, very tasty and quick and simple to prepare. Like so many of traditional Italian dishes every household and every mammas and nonnas have their own recipes none of which are identical, this is the one we established and find to our liking... Bucatini is the type of the pasta traditionally used for this recipe, you can also use spaghetti, the result is just as delicious. Note: Given amounts of ingredients below are just a rough indication... please feel free to adjust them according to your preference! Also, during the season, do use fresh ripe tomatoes instead of those from the tins!

      Loved it!! We've been spending a lot of time in Rome lately (oh the horror - right?) Now if I could just have a nice Roman view while I'm eating it....... ahhh, a girl can dream, can't she?

      This was really tasty. I used canned tomatoes with herbs. I added a dash of dried basil and dried oregano, and used low fat rashers. Will definitely make again. Thanks Lavender Lynn :-)

      This was delicious! I used pancetta and canned tomatoes, as that was all I had on hand. I also had to use spaghetti becaue I couldn't find bucatini in my grocery store. DH and I really enjoyed this dish and we plan to make it often.
