Carmine's penne alla matriciana

This recipe is a basic pasta dish which is indigenous to the Roman area of Italy. My most fondest memory of it was enjoying it with my uncle one year after travelling on the auto strade for most of the day. We turned off into a small town on the outskirts of Roma, stoped outside a small trattoria I could never find ever again and settled down to a fantastic robust dish. The recipe went something like this.

Add some parmigana, the rest of the bottle of wine and some good company, the family and what more could you want in life.
