Next for our first course we made pasta from scratch called pici all’aglione (kind of like a mix between spaghetti and noodles) to have with aglione sauce (tomato and garlic) and fagioli cannellini e timio sauce (pasta with cannellini beans and sauce made with onion and parmesan cheese) which we tried a local red wine with.
