Vegan Pasta Amatriciana

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Vegan Courtney

This is a vegan version of a classic Italian dish traditionally made with guanciale or pancetta. It's really, really tasty, and you can make the sauce or just buy some and add to it. The sauce should be very spicy. Enjoy this one with a nice red wine.
