Pici topped with amatriciana sauce


Ingredients for the pasta

  • Water Lt 1½
  • Flour Kg 1
  • Salt to taste

The amatriciana sauce

  • Onion 1
  • Jawls and cheek bacon g 300
  • Tuscan oil PGI to taste
  • Chili to taste
  • Pecorino Toscano PDO to taste
  • Peeled tomatoes kg 1,2
  • White wine to taste
  • Salt to taste

Proceeding for the pasta

Make a well in the center of the flour. Add as much water as needed and a pinch of salt. Then knead until the dough becomes smooth and homogeneous. Let it rest under a damp rag for 20 minutes.
Then, roll out 1cm thick pasta and cut it in long strips in order to create the “Pici’s” shape. Leave aside.

The amatriciana sauce

In a saucepan, brown the onions and the chili with oil. Add diced (jowls and cheeks) bacon and white wine. Let it evaporate and add squashed peeled tomatoes. Add salt and leave aside halfway through cooking time. Cook the pasta in boiling water, drain and mix with the sauce, adjust the taste and put it in a dish. Finally add some Pecorino Toscano DOP on the top.
