Fusilli Corti Bucati, originally from the Campania region, owe their distinctive spiral shape to the ancient tradition of rapidly twisting a strand of spaghetti around a knitting needle with a skilled hand.
This pasta is excellent served with hearty meat or vegetable ragùs.

Mezzi Tubetti Rigati (ridged half tubes) are a smaller variation of the classic Tubetti Rigati and are part of the very short, dry, straight cut, ridged pasta family from southern Italy.
The shape is what gives this pasta its name because it resembles small tubes.
Mezzi Tubetti Rigati are recommended for preparing soups with beans or lentils, or vegetable broths.
This pasta is also excellent for preparing very delicate pasta dishes with light tomato and basil sauces.
Available in 500g and 3 Kg packs.
