According to Wikipedia: “Pici is thick, hand-rolled pasta, like fat spaghetti. It originates in the province of Siena in Tuscany; in the Montalcino area they are also referred to as pinci. The dough is typically made from flour and water only. The addition of egg is optional, being determined by family traditions.”
According to Pasta Toscana: “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.
