#PastaToscana Discover how to prepare Pici with Aglione sauce

Pici with aglione sauce is a traditional dish, originating from Valdichiana that combines two great elements of Tuscan cuisine.

Pici - a rustic shape of pasta, made only using just water and flour – and the aglione, a variety of garlic that grows in the southern part of Tuscany: larger than garlic, but with a more delicate taste.

Let’s see together how to cook a perfect Tuscan dish!

Preparation Pici with Aglione sauce

Start with the preparation of the aglione sauce. Peel the aglione cloves, cut them in half and crush them finely. In a pan, pour the extra virgin olive oil, add the chopped aglione and blend it all with some water.

Cover the pan with a lid and cook at medium heat for about 15 minutes. Once the aglione is softened, accurately crush the larger pieces with a fork until they are finely chopped. It’s important to not fry the aglione, it must be cooked slowly.

Now, add the tomato pulp, the parsley, some spices and salt. Cover the pan again and cook the sauce at low heat for about 15-20 minutes, until it has reached the desired consistency.

Meanwhile, cook the pici in salted water. Drain al dente, toss it in the saucepan, cook at high heat for a few minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
