All’Amatriciana—go on, roll that “r” like they do in Italy—means a spicy pasta sauce of tomatoes and pancetta or bacon. Prego.

Cacio e Pepe
This crazy satisfying, ridiculously cheap, pantry-minded dinner consists of just pasta, cheese, oil, salt, pepper, and a nifty technique.
Refrigerator Sweet Pickles
A Scandinavian-style pickle that’s distinctly sweet, a little sour, and perfumed with dill. It doesn’t even require turning on the stove during the dog days of summer.
