I’d heard of Bucatini all’Amarticiana before. Marcella Hazan said, “The two are indivisible as Romeo and Juliet.”
Bucatini is a hollow, thicker, spaghtetti-like pasta. Almost like a thin drinking straw. Amatrice is a beautiful city in Central Italy.
And then I had the good fortune to savor this dish in a wonderful little Italian restaurant in Kansas City. And I was hooked.
