Step 1

Here are 5 easy steps to cook the perfect gluten-free amatriciana:

Step 2

To start, cut the guanciale or bacon into slices and then into rectangles. Add it to a pan over medium heat, along with a very small amount of water. Simmer the meat so that the fat melts.

Step 3

Next, prepare the tomatoes by making an X-shaped incision on the bottom of each tomato and blanching it in boiling water for 10 to 15 seconds. Immediately dip the tomatoes in ice water, then peel them, remove the seeds and dice them.
