zafferano fattoria san donato

Pici allo Zafferano


  • Pici senesi (or other fresh pasta)
  • a white onion (or even better a bunch of spring onions)
  • some slices of rigatino (Tuscan stretched pancetta) cut into thin strips
  • one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pack of saffron pistils from San Gimignano
  • salt and pepper
  • Tuscan pecorino


Heat the oil with the rigatino then add the finely sliced ​​onion. Cover and let it dry. With low heat, add salt, pepper and the saffron dissolved in a few tablespoons of hot broth. Cook the pici in boiling water, once they are al dente, drain them and sauté in a pan with the sauce and some grated pecorino (using a little cooking water to keep them soft).
