Tortelli with Amatriciana and Pecorino Sauce

Nested in the mountains of central Italy, Amatrice is a charming little town feted for its rich culinary heritage - particularly, the world famous sugo all'amatriciana, a traditional pasta sauce made of guanciale (cured pork cheek), pecorino cheese and tomato. Terrazza Italian Restaurant's Executive Chef Andrea Fioravanti shares his own family recipe with diners in a dish of Tortelli with Amatriciana and Pecorino Sauce, which, he says, honors his Italian grandmother and is dedicated to the people of Amatrice who lost their lives in the recent earthquake of 2016.

"In Italy, this sauce is normally eaten with long thin pasta, such as spaghetti or vermicelli," explains Chef Andrea, "but in my dish, I have dressed it on walnut-sized dumplings (or tortelli) instead. The key ingredient is Pecorino Romano, which is a hard, salty cheese made from sheep's milk, perfect for grating or adding robust flavor. I filled the tortelli with the Amatriciana and Pecorino sauce to balance the strong flavors, and the final step was to garnish with fresh basil for a fresh twist."
