    extra-virgin olive oil
    250 ml 1 cup of warm water

    1 fresh hot chili
    500 g of tomato sauce
    salt

    Instructions
    1. Put the flour on a large wooden working surface, make a well in the centre of the flour and

    oil and cover with clingfilm.
    4. Let it stand at room temperature from 2 hours up to a whole night.
    5. Roll out the dough into a thick sheet (at least 5 mm), then use the pici rolling pin or a knife
    to make deep cuts in it, about 5 mm large. Then, take out one noodle after the other,
    stretching and rolling them with your hands to make a kind of thik spaghetti.
    6. Place the pici on a sheet tray dusted with flour and set aside to dry. Boil them in steaming
    salted water for about 10 minutes, then drain them and season as you prefer.

    Aglione Sauce
