So popular there’s a festival in Tuscany to celebrate it, Pici pasta is an Italian classic. These long and thick strands of pasta are a simple blend of organic durum wheat semolina flour and water. Traditionally made by hand – thus their irregular shape - these fat strands are robust enough to stand up to the heartiest of sauces.
Serve Pici in winter with rustic ragouts and Bolognese sauces, or in spring and summer tossed with fresh cherry tomatoes and basil. Or go the simplest, most classic of routes with classic pipi caccio e pepe. The tangle of thick noodles catches every last piece of sauce, every crack of pepper, and lets you fully savor the dish. Toss with anchovies or sprinkle some Greek bottarga for a summery, by-the-ocean experience. Or make a Kale pesto pici dish for a super healthy lunch.
This Italian pasta is certified organic, so you’re assured the wheat was never treated with pesticides or agro-toxic chemicals.
