This is one of my best spaghetti sauce recipe which I often love to make, it's a sauce that recurs frequently now and then in our kitchen.
You'll find this spaghetti sauce easy to make and tasty with that crispy smoked bacon (Italian pancetta) and onions, it really makes a nice flavor and that's why we like it.
You can use Italian pancetta which is similar to English bacon, it's a cured meat derived from pig's belly adipose tissue, it's characterized by alternating layers of fat and thin meat and used often in Italian cuisine to make a variety of dishes.
Pancetta is produced in Italy where pig farming is well practiced.
This spaghetti recipe reminds me another more traditional Italian spaghetti sauce named spaghetti all'Amatriciana from Rome.
TIP! With these ingredients you will make enough sauce to season about 12 oz (340g) of spaghetti, about 4 servings.
1. Add the chopped onion to the sauce pot with the extra virgin olive oil and sauté the onion for a few minutes.
2. Add the diced bacon.
3. Occasionally give a stir and cook the bacon until crisp and brown.
4. Now add the tomato puree into the pan and cook for 15 minutes adjusting with salt and pepper to taste.
Drain the spaghetti and transfer them to your dish, pour the sauce over and sprinkle some Parmigiano Reggiano, freshly ground pepper.
Yes, they are best eaten warm!
