Pasta all’Amatriciana {Tomato Sauce with Pancetta}

Hi, I am Rosemary from  An Italian in my kitchen.  I spent my first 29 years of life growing up in Canada until I met my future Italian husband.  I relocated to Rome Italy and for the past 23 years and counting I call Rome my second home.  I have learned to cook authentic Italian recipes from my 2nd family, friends and anyone I encountered who might be open (and thank goodness Italians are very open) to my “how do I cook that?”  This is probably one of the first recipes I ever made on my own and which is also my youngest daughter’s favorite.  So I hope you enjoy it too.
