This traditional recipe is famous all over the world, making its birthplace, the picturesque village of Amatrice, in the province of Rieti near Rome, a popular tourist attraction. As one of the most typical recipes of the Lazio region, in 2020 it was officially recognized as a guaranteed traditional specialty of the European Union.
Our Cesarine from Amatrice are faithful to the original recipe, which is ancient. The recipe only began to use the addition of tomato in the 1700s, when this ingredient arrived in our country, but it dates back much further.
This is the recipe we use today, and how we can guarantee a true taste of Italy right at your table. The selection and research of top-quality local ingredients such as guanciale (pork cheek bacon) and Italian-grown tomatoes make the Cesarine's Amatriciana an excellent sauce for your pasta dishes.

For a perfect Amatriciana, the Cesarine suggest heating the sauce in a non-stick pan adding a ladle of pasta cooking water before mixing your cooked pasta into the sauce in the pan to serve. As a garnish, you can fry some strips of guanciale and add a generous sprinle of Pecorino Romano DOP cheese.
