Buccatini with meat sauce


* tip - If you cannot find or do not want to buy San Marzano tomatoes, I have found that Muir Glen canned whole tomatoes are pretty good. There are many canned tomatoes that are not. San Marzanos are going to have a richness of flavor you won't get with other tomatoes. They usually are found in 28 ounce size cans. In a recipe like this, where you just use 1 cup of them, I just freeze the remainder for another use. They freeze just fine.


3 ounces pancetta, cubed
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon red hot chili pepper (or to taste - mine was very fresh and hot)
1/4 cup of dry white wine
1 cup canned whole tomatoes and juice, crushed (use San Marzano if you can)*
8 ounces Bucatini pasta (or spaghetti)
1/2 cup freshly grated Pecorino cheese
salt to taste
