 Spaghetti alla Amatriciana

Courtesy of John Goldberg of Mangia Sano in Milford
 
2 ounces guanciale or good quality pancetta (very thinly sliced strips and then julienne the strips)
24 ounces tomatoes
½ medium onion, diced
A pinch of red chili flakes
¼ cup white wine
Olive oil
1 box spaghetti or long pasta of your choice
Pecorino romano cheese to grate on top, and a couple basil leaves torn and scattered on top
Slowly heat the sliced guanciale with a tablespoon of olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onions to the pan to soften in the rendered fat, cooking them until soft but without color. Add the white wine and reduce by three quarters. Add the tomatoes. Cook down on a low heat for 10 to 15 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Add salt to taste. Cook the pasta in a pan of heavily salted boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or as per packet instructions. Once the pasta is al dente, drain and add it to the sauce, tossing to make sure the pasta is evenly coated. Serve straight away with plenty of grated pecorino romano and some torn basil leaves.

In The Kitchen

 What is your must-have kitchen item?

A cleaver.
 
What would you have for your last meal?
Pasta with fresh porcini mushrooms and truffles. It doesn’t matter what kind as long as it’s fresh.

What is your favorite local restaurant?
El Rincon [Zacatecano Taqueria in Manchester]. That place is amazing. I’ll get a mix of whatever they have on the regular menu or their specials, and the kids go for the burritos.
 
What celebrity would you like to see eating in your restaurant?
The Rock.
 
What is your favorite thing on your menu?
It’s got to be the meatballs. We make them from scratch. People go crazy for them. You can get them on any pasta or on the side, and then people will also order them as a meatball sandwich for lunch.
 
What is the biggest food trend in New Hampshire right now?
I’ve noticed a lot now that restaurants are doing whatever they can to offer more family value meals for people to afford.
 
What’s your favorite thing to cook at home?
We eat a lot of pasta, veggies and fish at home. — Matt Ingersoll
