Today’s Special: Rigatoni All’ Amatriciana
Here’s the history of this classic Roman dish:
According to Italymagazine.com, Amatriciana is one of Italy’s most-famous pasta dishes, but its original name isn’t amatriciana. It was originally known as griscia, derived from Grisciano, a town near Accumoli, wherein shepherds would toss their pasta was with guanciale (cured pork jowl) and pecorino cheese. The townspeople of nearby Amatrice then added tomato sauce to this practice, which gave a new name to this dish – Amatriciana, which is sometimes simply referred to as ‘Matriciana.
