Tuscan pici pasta is a traditional dish made with handmade pasta. Pici are robust and can take on any kind of sauce to compliment their unique texture.
Pici is a rustic handmade pasta from Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia. Called pici in Cortona and Montepulciano, and pinci in Montalcino, they are a long, irregular spaghetti, best when “fatta a mano” or “fatta in casa”, made by hand, or in house. The name pici comes from the term “appiciare”, which refers to the traditional manual technique used to form these long, thick noodles. Ancient in origin, dating back to the Etruscans, they were made from only flour and water, the poor everyday pasta of the Sienese peasants. Including a small amount of egg was the rich version, reserved for Sundays and holidays.

There are several different ways of producing pici, all of which require only your hands, a wooden board, and optionally a rolling pin – no pasta machine needed. The traditional “appiciare” technique involves rolling out a larger quantity of dough into a sheet around 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. You cut a strip of dough about 1/4” thick from this sheet, grasp one end in your fingers to hold, then, using a flat palm, roll the noodle back and forth on a floured wooden board to round and lengthen.

Great taste, excellent texture

I love the texture of the pasta, and the taste is excellent. This is the favorite pasta I have ever had. The price is a little steep, but this pasta is of exceptional quality.

Yummy

I've tried many different types of pasta over the years, but I have to say that this is my new favorite! It has a wonderful texture and flavor, and it's satisfying without being too heavy. I made a delicious dinner for my family with it last night, and they devoured every single bit of it.

Tuscan Pici pasta is a staple in our kitchen. It's the perfect base for sauces, and it's even good on its own with a little olive oil or butter. I love this stuff!
