Pasta Pici di Toscana Organic Pastificio Morelli

Pasta Pici di Toscana Organic Pastificio Morelli

Pici (also known as pinci in Montalcino) 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, Montalcino or Montepulciano, chances are you've enjoyed Pici/Pinci. When cooked it has a radius almost that of a standard pencil (cooking time, at almost 20 minutes, is longer than, say, spaghetti but, it is well worth the wait). Serve it with most any sauce or try something more traditional like pici alle briciole (pici with breadcrumbs) or pici all'aglione (pici with tomatoes and garlic). Produce of organic durum semolina wheat. Recipes and more information on Visit Tuscany.

Pasta da Antico Grano Siciliano Fusilloni Azienda Agricola il Censo

Pasta da Antico Grano Siciliano Fusilloni Azienda Agricola il Censo

Crafted from an ancient Sicilian grain known as Timilia, the wheat itself in this larger version of Fusilli is milled in Umbria at the same facility as Giampiero Bea's Senatore Cappelli grains. The resulting flour is then sent to Tuscany to be formed into these delectable spirals that are naturally low in gluten. Il Censo's pastas boast a gluten composition of less than 20%, while traditional pastas typically hover at around 80‑90%. The fusilloni is an excellent choice when paired with bolognese, a rich pesto, or fresh vegetables with tomato arrabiata.
