Add the slices of garlic and let it brown over moderate heat, being careful not to burn it. Combine the prepared chilli, adjusting the quantity to taste, and let the oil flavor, then turn off the flame.

3) Cook the pasta. Room the water you brought to a boil and cook the pici following the times indicated on the package. Drain them slightly al dente and transfer them to the pan with oil, garlic and chilli.

4) Complete the dish. Blow up pici with garlic, oil and chilli for a few moments and add another 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, this time raw, before serving. If you wish, you can finally add some parsley finely chopped.


Instead of pici you can use any type of durum wheat semolina pasta with a long format and with a certain thickness in diameter: spaghetti, bucatino, bigolo or troccolo go well. Too thin pasta, such as spaghettini, does not do as well.
