An easy, but thoroughly delicious, rich pasta dish
I just love Italy- the food, the places, the people- it’s a dream destination for me. We travelled to Umbria a couple of years ago at the end of the summer holidays- we didn’t have a big budget so we found the cheapest flights that we could (they were to Milan, I wouldn’t recommend that drive!), and then rented a cheap but beautiful little villa via Air B&B in deepest Umbria- it was idyllic, we had fresh herbs in the garden, figs growing in the grounds of the complex- we stocked up on wine and pasta and the girls were in 7th heaven because there was a lovely pool!
Anyway, one of the best know Umbrian dishes is Spaghetti all’Amatriciana, I was dying to try one while I was out there but somehow I just didn’t get the opportunity. So my version is my own British interpretation of the dish- the Italians might shudder at my addition of worcestershire sauce, but I think it works really well so it is staying!
