Pici is a hand-rolled pasta from Siena in Tuscany; it's like a thick spaghetti, made in long strands that are twisted into coils before drying; once cooked they separate into individual strands again. The cooking time is 22 minutes for al dente. The porous nature of these pici nests makes them the perfect for any type of sauce, but traditionally it is served in Siena All'Aglione, with a tomato, garlic, hot pepper sauce. Also served with a meat ragu.
This Pici Pasta is produced by L'Antica Panarese and considered to be of the finest quality, because they select the best italian durum wheat semolina, and the pasta is processed according to traditional craft technique.
