Tuscan Dinner for 2 Hamper food content:

Pici is the oldest and most traditional food of the neighbouring areas in Siena, particularly Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino up to Grosseto, where they are traditionally called "Princi". They kind of represent the culinary genius of old country housewives who, with a little water and a little flour, could create a substantial appetizing dish, which left nobody hungry. Cinta Senese is the most traditional sauce in the entire area of southern Tuscany. The result is one amazing pasta dish. Bernardini Gastone Tuscan meat sauces available: Cinta Senese, Hare, Wild Boar, Duck, Wild Roebuck.
250 g of Morelli Pici
180 g of Bernardini Gastone 'Cinta Senese' ragu (=Tuscan pork meat sauce)
Pasquini Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Tuscany
Cook the pici in boiling salted water; do not stir them for the first ten minutes so as to prevent breaking them.
Drain them after about 15 minutes and cook them in a pan with the Cinta Senese sauce. It is also advisable to keep some of the cooking water to add it to the pasta for taste, if necessary.
Serve hot, immediately, with sprinkled Parmesan and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on each plate. Enjoy!
