1 medium onion
1 clove garlic
4 oz bacon or pancetta
generous 1 lb ripe tomatoes (or 14 oz canned)
12 oz rigged penne (quills)
1 red chili pepper
1/4 cup grated Pecorino cheese


Finely chop the onion and garlic, and cut the bacon into thin, short strips. Scald the tomatoes for 1 min in boiling water, then skin and remove the seeds. Chop or slice. (If you are using canned tomatoes put them through a sieve.) Melt the butter in a wide skillet and cooked the chopped onion, garlic and bacon over low heat until golden brown. Add the tomatoes and the red chili pepper. Simmer over moderate heat, and discard the chili pepper when the sauce is sufficiently spicy to suit your taste. Half cook the pasta and drain after about 6 min., reserving a little of the cooking water. Transfer to the cooking pan, add 1-2 tbsp grated Pecorino cheese and over high fire stir gently until the pasta is cooked. Dilute the sauce with some of the pasta cooking water if it is too thick. Serve with the rest of the grated Pecorino cheese.
