Pici is a kind of pasta that looks like larger Spaghetti and represents one of the recent new items out of the line Formati Regionali of Rustichella d’Abruzzo. The classic condiment is aglione, a tomato sauce with a particular type of garlic cultivated only in Sarteano (Siena) and its surroundings. However, this pasta can be combined also with livers sauce or with sautéed breadcrumbs in olive oil. Condiments like Rustichella d’Abruzzo “ai Funghi Porcini” and the amazing “Tartufata” sauces are also recommended. Cooking time: 20-22 minutes.

Produced through the same bronze dies used for the Paccheroni Rigati, Rustichella d'Abruzzo proposes the Maniconi, a shape of the same diameter, but half the length of the classic Paccheroni. Perfect to collect any condiment thanks to its roughness and the ridging on the surface, Maniconi is excellent when combined with seafood and crustaceans for a typical Mediterranean-flavoured first course. Rustichella d'Abruzzo suggests to enjoy this shape with a classic recipe of Rome's gastronomy, such as "Cacio e Pepe" or with a "Funghi Porcini" sauce or, why not, a delicious "Ragu bianco" sauce, all by Rustichella d'Abruzzo. Cooking time: 13-15 minutes.

Speciality of PrimoGrano line, the local type of tomato called “Pera” (pear) grows in Abruzzo. It is unique and very different from all the other varieties of tomato. It has been cultivated for centuries and has very few seeds, it is very fleshy and weighs about 300-500 g. It is particularly suited for the preparation of sauces and its sweet and velvety taste, together with its low acidity, makes it much more refined than all other common types. To enjoy its organoleptic properties, we recommend using it “raw”, pan-frying it together with pasta and adding just a little bit of PrimoGrano INTOSSO Extra Virgin Olive Oil with some perfumed basil leaves.

Shape similar to Spaghetti but with higher thickness and a square section instead of round, which is named after the typical tool used for its preparation (called indeed “chitarra”), which gives this pasta a firm texture that can capture completely the condiment, ranging from a simple but delicious tomato and basil sauce, to a more full-bodied and rustic one like sausage and radicchio or a “healthier” one like Rustichella d’Abruzzo “pesto alla Genovese”. Cooking time: 16-18 minutes.
