Amatriciana is a classic Italian pasta sauce that's made of guanciale, tomatoes, and pecorino cheese. The quick and delicious pasta recipe that's shown here takes inspiration from the traditional Roman dish. Bacon replaces the guanciale; fresh, in-season tomatoes make up the fragrant scrumptious sauce; and parmesan is used instead of pecorino. The sauce comes together in the same amount of time that it takes to boil the water and cook the spaghetti, so you'll have an amazing dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.
