Delicious! I doubled the recipe for 5 people because we like to have a bit more sauce on our pasta. It was a little spicy for my taste - I'll leave out the red pepper flakes next time. The shallots gave it plenty of kick. My son prefers a meat sauce vs. a marinara, so this is a great option for a hearty pasta dinner when I don't have time to make a traditional meat sauce.
The right spelling is "Amatriciana".

Delicious, slightly spicy recipe. I used diced tomatoes and omitted the bacon step and it was still wonderful.
