2In front of such a simple yet delicious recipe such as Bucatini all’Amatriciana my twisting obsession can only go so far as to turn the pasta into a scrumptious bruschetta. I’m telling you: this will quickly become your go-to starter or a party favourite!

4-5 servings


  • 1 rustic loaf of bread (think of ciabatta or sourdough bread)
  • 2-3 fresh plum tomatoes
  • 50 g of thinly sliced guanciale
  • 20 g thinly shaved pecorino cheese
  • 1 chilli pepper, finely chopped
  • 1-2 clove of garlic
  • olive oil
  • basil

You will need 

  • 1 knife, a broiler and/or a frying pan

9Cut your bread into 1 cm thick slices, lightly oil them and grill them on both sides in a pan or under the broiler. Rub one side with a clove of garlic.

10Cut your tomatoes in bite size chunks and scatter them over the slice of bread along with a few tiny bits of chili pepper. Add several paper-thin slices of guanciale and place under the broiler until the cured pork crisps up.

11Add shavings of pecorino cheese, basil and a very light drizzle of olive oil. Garnish with some more chili and serve straight away while warm and crispy.
