Pici Pasta Easy
This is an easy and fun pasta to make. You need 3 ingredients and that’s it!
It’s just flour, oil and water. The dough is wonderful to work, super soft and needs to be had rolled.
- 300g '00' flour
- 3 tablespoons of mild olive oil
- 150 room temperature water
Pour the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the centre and add the water and oil.
Combine with a fork until roughly together and bring together with your hands.
You can also make this in a mixer. Just be very carful not to over-work it. Stop the machine as soon as the mixture comes together.
Wrap in cling film and leave to rest at room temperature for 20-30 minutes.
Cut in half and roll into a rectangle roughly 1/2 cm thick. Do not use any extra flour. The dough should not need it.
Cut into strips roughly 1/2 cm thick and roll them out with your hands until 3-4 times the length.
Toss in a bowl or a tray with a couple of tablespoons of flour and just keep rolling.
Bring a pot of water with a teaspoon of salt to boil.
Add the pasta gradually, to make sure they are separated.
Boil for 2-3 minutes and serve with a sauce!
