About this recipe: Along with other infamous dishes, such as carbonara and amatriciana, 'Spaghetti alla gricia' is served in every restaurant in Rome! It is a very simple dish of pasta, cured pork and cheese. Like other local dishes, the traditional version uses guanciale, a bacon-style cured meat from around the pig's cheek. It's a very old recipe - some say that this was the dish Romans cooked before tomatoes were available in Italy.
