Tuscan "Gricia" with Pecorino Toscano PDO

Gricia Toscana


  • 100 g of rigatoni pasta
  • Finocchiona PGI to taste
  • Aged Pecorino Toscano PDO
  • Salt and pepper to taste


While the rigatoni pasta is cooking in plenty of boiling salted water, cut the Finocchiona PGI into small cubes and heat it in a pan for a couple of minutes over high heat.

Drain the pasta directly into the pan with the Finocchiona, add a little cooking water, and mix vigorously.

Grate plenty of Pecorino Toscano PDO on the pasta and continue mixing all the ingredients until obtaining a Pecorino Toscano cream.

Serve the Tuscan “gricia” hot.
