Spaghetti alla Gricia
« on: September 10, 2008, 02:33:51 am »

Number of People: 4-6


50 gr. pecorino
150 gr. Guanciale (or bacon, speck or pancetta)
40 gr. olive oil
1 whole clove of garlic
1 whole red chilli 

400 gr spaghetti


Place the pecorino into the TM bowl and grate for 20 seconds on speed 8.  Set aside.
Cut the guanciale into cubes and put in the TM bowl with oil, garlic and chilli.  Brown the guanciale well for 10 minutes at 100°C on reverse and speed 1.

While cooking the sauce prepare the spaghetti as per packet instructions.  If you wish to cook in the TMX, then make sauce first and keep warm while preparing the pasta.

Place drained spaghetti on a large hot dish & dress with the soffritto from which you removed the garlic and chilli. Sprinkle generously with pecorino and enjoy the strong flavours.

Suggestion: spaghetti can be replaced perfectly with bucatini. The guanciale can be replaced with sausage.


None - haven't cooked as yet in TMX


Translated and converted from the Italian book "Sua Maestą La Pasta" for TM 21 for TM 31 - but not cooked so watch timing/speeds.
