Pici with PGI Finocchiona, pecorino cream and fresh fava – A recipe made by the Blogger Silvia Parigi

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • Pici 200 gr
  • PGI Finocchiona 100 g
  • Mature PDO Tuscan Pecorino 100 g
  • Two tablespoons of fresh fava beans
  • PGI Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and black pepper as needed
  • Fresh thyme as needed


Remove the external coating of PGI Finocchiona; run it through a meat mincer, in the meantime boil the necessary quantity of water for cooking ‘pici’. Peel fava beans and run half of them through a blender.

In a small pan, heat the cubes of mature PDO Tuscan Pecorino with two tablespoons of hot water: when pecorino is creamy, turn off the fire and add the minced PGI Finocchiona. Cook pici and in the meantime heat a small amount of oil in a pan, add the mashed fava beans and the pecorino-PGI Finocchiona mixture. Add some salt and pepper if necessary.

Drain pasta ‘al dente’ and toss it in a saucepan with the dressing on high heat; mix well and add thyme and the remaining fava beans.
