Pici pasta enjoys a long, ancient history, dating back to the Etruscans. This regional specialty originates from the town of Siena in Tuscany. If you’ve been to Siena, chances are you’ve enjoyed Pici pasta!
When cooked, pici has a radius about the size of a standard pencil, giving it a cook time of around 20 minutes, but it is well worth the wait.
Serve it with any sauce or try something more traditional like pici alle briciole (pici with breadcrumbs) or pici all’aglione (pici with tomatoes and garlic). This hard to find pasta makes it one of our most requested!
