Do I get in trouble if I decided to cook a very iconic Italian recipe? Actually I don’t know, but Guanciale is into the fridge and my family gets hungry!
And the result is : Bucatini all’Amtriciana, do you know it?
A hearty first course, with a greedy and rich bite, soooo rich. Hungry people: run to buy the ingredients and come and cook it!
