We love this red sauce for its buttery, medium-bodied character brought on by the way our hand-cured Pancetta melds with our signature small-batch tomato sauce.
Pancetta is a dry-cured Italian bacon that renders into the sauce a creamy texture with remarkable finesse and softness after over five hours of cooking. It truly is one of the wonders of classical charcuterie, and Atlantic Ave. takes pride in the 6-week long process necessary to produce our Pancetta. We think you will be surprised by the harmony and round flavor profile created by combining the best Pancetta available with our freshest San Marzano tomato sauce, in a way only Atlantic Ave. can.
Wine pairings should have an even palate, so a medium-bodied red like a Merlot or lighter Cabernet Sauvignon, or even a white like a Pinot Grigio, won't be overpowered by this red sauce’s subtle flavor.
Bring to temperature and serve over penne or fusilli, cooked just slightly al dente. Finish with butter for a richer texture. Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano will finish your presentation.
