Amatriciana with Linguine

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 12 oz bacon
  • 1/2 large onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder or 2 fresh cloves minced
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2-14.5 oz cans stewed tomatoes undrained
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil chopped (about 5 leaves)
  • 16 oz box linguine pasta
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt


Heat a large saute pan on the stove over med-high heat. Dice bacon strips into bite-sized pieces. Fry bacon until crispy.

On a small cutting board, dice onion into small pieces.

Start heating a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta.

Add diced onions and red pepper flakes to the pan of cooked bacon (and the grease). Saute for 2-3 minutes or until onions are translucent.

On a small cutting board, finely dice fresh basil leaves as the onions saute.

Add 16 oz of linguine pasta to the boiling water. Cook until just shy of al dente. Boil the linguine noodles for 9 minutes, though the box says 11-13 minutes for fully cooked pasta. The noodles will finish cooking in the pasta sauce.

To the pan of bacon and onions, add the garlic, stewed tomatoes, basil, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes while breaking up the tomatoes . The sauce will begin to thicken.

On a small cutting board, dice onion into small pieces. With a pasta fork, add the not quite al dente pasta to the pan of red sauce. Stir the pasta and sauce together over low-medium heat for 2-3 more minutes.

Remove the pasta and sauce mixture from heat. Serve topped with additional chopped basil and Parmesan cheese.
