Amatriciana is a classic Italian dish originating in Amatrice. It gets its flavor from the key ingredients of guanciale, spicy chiles, and Pecorino Romano cheese. Guanciale is a flavorful Italian salt-cured pork cheek with a high fat content. It is available at specialty deli counters, butchers or well-stocked grocery stores.
Substitute pancetta for guanciale.
